Please update udhcp from debian

Bug Description

The current udhcp code is ancient (>5 years old) because at that time they moved the codebase to busybox and it's been maintained there since.

Please do what debian did, i.e. drop the current udhcp package and import the new one from debian that builds from the busybox source:

That will also fix a lot of bugs in the current (= 5 year old) udhcp package, e.g. LP #563056, LP #505916 etc.

Thank you Colin, the new udhcp package works fine for LTSP, the old package shouldn't be needed anywhere.
