Package: isc-dhcp-client
Version: 4.3.1-6
Severity: normal

The isc-dhcp-client doesn't recognize infiniband devices as a type supported to use it on a dhcp request.
I think this behavior was reported in ticket #786350 (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=786350) but it doesn't have an answer yet.

As an example, I attach the output of a dhcp request over a ib0 device.

$ dhclient -v ib0

Unsupported device type 32 for "ib0"
