Bug Description

Binary package hint: dhcpcd

You can't use spaces in OPTIONS (in /etc/default/dhcpcd) since IFS manage is wrong (I need to use -i "MSFT 5.0" as option)

Thank you for your work, the patch itself looks good, but there are a few changes needed to get it in Ubuntu:

1. The target distribution should be "karmic", not "unstable.
2. The package version should be 3.2.3-3ubuntu1, according to the version naming scheme upstreamversion-debianrevisionUbunturevision
3. The "maintainer"-field in debian/control should be updated to match
4. Please also attach your patch to the debian bugreport, that will help getting it included and we can sync the package again in the future.

Unsubscribing the sponsors team for now, please resubscribe when you have those changes made. Thanks again for your contribution.
