It might be worth listing more rationale, such as a scenario that fails
without this patch.

DHCP requests are most often sent via broadcast but can be directed at a specific DHCP server. For example 'dhclient' takes '-s <server>' as a command line parameter thus allowing DHCP requests to directed at a specific DHCP server.

I'll add above rational to the commit message.
