[Bug 61903] Re: dhcp3 fails to start during boot-time but starts seamlessly invoking the init-script manually

I hit this issue today, on karmic.  dhcpd _sometimes_ fails to start on
manually configured interfaces.

IMHO this happens because there is a race between the "new"
/etc/init/networking.conf from upstart/ifupdown and the "old"
/etc/rc2.d/S40dhcp3-server.  Nothing makes sure that networking is fully
up before the start-scripts for (e.g.) runlevel 2 are started (in former
times, this was of course guaranteed by the sysinit scripts).  The
appended patch makes sure that all multi-user runlevel scripts are
executed only after networking (ifup -a) has completed.

I think this bug could also affect other services with only sysvinit-
compatible start scripts.
