Summary: check_dhcp: server identifier(54) as offerer/siaddr

Initial Comment:
check_dhcp doesn't use server identifier (54) as server (siaddr), but this is the real serveraddresse.
source is only the address of the relay-dhcp (giaddr).
this patch adds the server_identifier as siaddr.

btw. please "ident" your code. it's so terrible to patch this files, if somebody wrotes such unreadable code. thanks.

1) We're all doing this on a voluntary basis.
2) Looking into a patch (that is, understanding it, testing it, making
sure that it does the right thing[tm], that it's portable, that it doesn't
introduce subtle side effects, and so on) takes time.
3) Adding such comments and increasing the tracker item priority *without*
an apparent reason generally won't speed things up.
4) Although I personally prefer other styles of indentation than the one
used in check_dhcp.c (but that's just a matter of taste), the critical
point is to be *consistent* with your indentation, which check_dhcp.c *is*.
 As a side note, it would be nice to have a consistent indentation style
across *all* plugins, which we currently haven't.  However, changing
indentation style has the *big* drawback that it makes cvs diffs which
cross the indentation change unreadable.
5) When contributing patches, it is generally considered bad style to
break such consistency and/or to include changes other than the actual
fix/feature within the same diff.
6) However, thank you for your patch.

how much time you need to submit this patch to cvs?
i don't understand, that the nagios-plugins-project is so slow.
