I just received some suggestions from the dhcpcd's author.
I guess it could be the right moment to review dhcpcd section in the
"Network Configuration" paragraph in CRUX Handbook.

I just checked your init script for dhcpcd.... May I make some
/sbin/dhcpcd -t 10 -h $HOSTNAME eth0
/usr/bin/killall -q /sbin/dhcpcd
May I recommend this instead?
/sbin/dhcpcd -t 10
Firstly, when invoked like that it runs in master mode and handles the
situation where you have more than one interface a lot better.
Like say a laptop and wired and wireless both connected (and maybe a 4G
phone) and dhcpcd will handle routing and DNS correctly, preferring by
default wired > wireless > 4G
When stopping with -x, the call will spin until dhcpcd has exited,
which may or may not be important if the user has defined any hooks
that must be called before spinning down the disks.
Lastly, is crux using dhcpcd-dbus and dhcpcd-ui(gtk) for a system tray
notification of dhcpcd state?
