Description

We can detect rebooting pandas more quickly by monitoring for dhcp requests, or writing a small boot script which generates a UDP broadcast at startup, or through bootp requests.

This could be helpful when diagnosing failures and potentially to add extended timeout periods to allow a panda to reboot without failing a test run.
Could be improved, but a dead-simple application of Wireshark's command line tool:
$ tshark -l -i eth0 -f "port 67 or port 68" -T fields -e bootp.hw.mac_addr 
Capturing on eth0
b8:27:eb:5f:5e:4f,b8:27:eb:5f:5e:4f

http://www.wireshark.org/docs/dfref/b/bootp.html lists all the fields.

I'm not sure if this is still relevant. Geoff, do you think we can just close this bug?

I don't think there is a particular, pressing need for this.
