    Linux now stops dhcpcd doing things that aren't really legal but happened
    to work in 2.0. 0.0.0.0 is not a valid IP addresses. The old dhcpcd can
    do bad things if something else sends packets to 0.0.0.0 (if you've ever
    seen mixed dhcp and old old sun boxes with 0.0.0.0 as broadcast on a lan
    you'd get the picture)
