Description poletti.marco 2012-10-30 07:52:30 UTC
The following messages:

        elog "Users upgrading from 4.0 series should pay attention to removal"
        elog "of compat useflag. This changes behavior of dhcp in wide manner:"
        elog "dhcpcd no longer sends a default ClientID for ethernet interfaces."
        elog "This is so we can re-use the address the kernel DHCP client found."
        elog "To retain the old behaviour of sending a default ClientID based on the"
        elog "hardware address for interface, simply add the keyword clientid"
        elog "to dhcpcd.conf or use commandline parameter -I ''"
        elog "Also, users upgrading from 4.0 series should be aware that"
        elog "the -N, -R and -Y command line options no longer exist."
        elog "These are controled now by nohook options in dhcpcd.conf."

Should only be displayed when upgrading from a version <5.0.
It's possible to check whether this is the case using the variable REPLACING_VERSIONS. Note that the variable is empty if this is not an upgrade, and in that case the message should not be shown.

Reproducible: Always
