Or teach the DHCP client code to use different client identifiers for
Redboot and eCos. Then the DHCP server could look at the client
identifiers in the DHCP request and assign different IP addresses, even
if the Ethernet addresses in both requests are the same.

But does DHCP with Redboot work properly at all? Does Redboot still
renew its lease once eCos is running? If not, you have to use BOOTP or
static addresses anyway.
