Patch for tweaking the arpping.

We're using busybox udhcpd on one of our embedded products.

The DHCP client on the product is a OEM board with an ethernet port.
Unfortunately this device has a particularly short timeout for the DHCP
DISCOVER, which means that several DISCOVER messages are displayed in the log
prior to the DHCP REQUEST/ACK.

This patch adds the option to disable arpping altogether (caveat emptor), or to
tune the timeout to an arbitrary value.
