This memo defines a new suboption of the DHCP relay information
option that allows the DHCP relay to specify a new value for the
Server Identifier option, which is inserted by the DHCP Server.  This
allows the DHCP relay to act as the actual DHCP server such that
RENEW DHCPREQUESTs will come to the relay instead of going to the
server directly.  This gives the relay the opportunity to include the
Relay Agent option with appropriate suboptions even on DHCP RENEW
messages.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
