[Dnsmasq-discuss] RFE: Let DNS entries live on after the DHCP lease runs out

Sometimes my main machine (called "pastel") somehow fails to renew its DHCP
lease on time.  Part of the reason for it is that it's hibernating, other
part is that it seems to fail to request a new lease upon wake up.

As long as nobody else is using that machine's IP, it would be good for
dnsmasq to still keep a DNS entry for that machine, so I can still know that
pastel's IP is even when the machine is hibernating or hasn't
refreshed its lease yet.
