 The IP address (e.g., for communicating with remote disk servers) is
 currently taken from {{{/chosen/dhcp-response}}}, which is commented as
 non-standardized.

 On my PowerMac G3 b&w, DHCP does not work at all. I need to either specify
 it as part of the boot command or set a default for it in {{{default-
 client-ip}}}.

 If we don't have the binary address in {{{/chosen/dhcp-response}}}, try to
 parse the address from {{{/options/default-client-ip}}}.
