[Dnsmasq-discuss] Possible bug setting dhcp-option 17

Hi,

I wanted to net boot some Sparc machines using dnsmasq:

dhcp-option=17,"/export/elena/root"
dhcp-boot=/tftpboot/boot.net.netbsd,bootsvr,192.168.42.1

But setting the root-path doesn't work if the path is longer than 8
characters. The first condition in do_opt() (rfc2131.c) evaluates to
true and the operation returns immediately. Is this a configuration
error or a bug in dnsmasq?

Regards
Michael
