debian-installer fails to obtain dhcp ip address

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer

When installing the Alpha 2 lucid-alternate-armel+imx51.img, the installer fails to obtain a valid dhcp address on the first try. It usually takes two or three tries for it to get a dhcp address.

This has also been seen on the armel+dove image.

Increasing the dhcp timeout by a few seconds should alleviate this problem.
