Description Dan Kenigsberg 2009-05-27 04:13:02 EDT
Description of problem:
addNetwork does not wait for a slow dhcp response. Therefore, network is not available when addNetwork returns. This is known and expected, but unwanted on init scripts.

We thus add a new param, blockingdhcp=true, signifying that addNetwork should block until ip address is returned from dhcp server (or until timeout).
vdsm-reg and vds-bootstrap will use this flag (while VDC should not)
