It can happen in the real world, and I suspect the more interfaces one 
has the worse it becomes.  I reduced the rate of perfdhpc to 100 LPS, 
and while the starvation was not as pronounced, it is still present:

Running: perfdhcp -4 -r 100 -R 500000 -p 5 178.16.1.10
***Rate statistics***
Rate: 22.7687 4-way exchanges/second, expected rate: 100

Running: perfdhcp -4 -r 100 -R 500000 -p 5 175.16.1.10
