How can I fix dhclient in debian stable with the 2.6 kernel?

In debian stable (and maybe unstable, I haven't looked), the /sbin/dhclient script doesn't know about the 2.6 kernel yet. (If you boot up 2.6.0 and don't get a DHCP lease, and you notice "Unrecognized kernel version" in the output of the ifup command, this is your problem.) The solution is to edit /sbin/dhclient and change "2.[12345].*)" to "2.[123456].*)"
