Hello. Since fedora aims to be one of the most secure distros, i
think packet socket support should be configured and compiled as a

other sniffing tools will still be able to do so but another who
doesn't want to will be able to blacklist the module. Just a thought
but i would appreciate a reply. Thanks.
I believe dhclient needs the packet filter and packet socket options.
Given that DHCP is pretty universal, modularizing packet socket may
not make any sense.
