In your specific case, I would use netem [1] to introduce a delay to
incoming DHCP packets.  I dislike the idea of deliberately introducing
performance penalties to upstream software, and I think fixes like this
needlessly complicate things.  Broken hardware is a site-specific issue
and should be addressed in a site-specific manner.
