[ipxe-devel] custom dhcp client_id option

I have a project where it would be useful for me to set a custom client_id when using dhcp to configure a network interface.  Specifically, in my case I'd like to pass the SMBIOS uuid as the client_id for an infiniband port instead of the port GUID.  In my application, I can guarantee that only one port will be making dhcp requests to the server, and this would allow my node to get the a consistent ipaddr/hostname from dnsmasq no matter which port the node pxe booted from.
I can hack the code for my own purposes, but was wondering if there might be interest in having this as a general ipxe setting.  I'm willing to do the work and push it if this seems reasonable.
