I'm running dnsmasq version 2.76 on a raspberry pi to provide DNS and
DHCP services on my LAN.

I have some dhcp-host lines in my configuration file to give names to
systems that don't give their names, e.g.:-

    dhcp-host=00:09:B0:C9:CE:81,onkyoTx-nr616
    dhcp-host=28:EF:01:2D:EB:07,chrisKindle
    dhcp-host=08:EB:74:9D:47:53,humaxFreeview
    dhcp-host=2C:08:8C:CC:9A:9E,humaxYouview
    dhcp-host=00:1F:E2:4E:8F:CA,maxineStudy
    dhcp-host=1C:1B:0D:60:9A:E1,ben
    dhcp-host=AC:AE:19:2C:3F:5A,roku
    dhcp-host=10:FE:ED:63:29:74,TP-Link_TL-WA7210

Most of these work but a couple don't work.... ..and I think I have
just realised why they don't work.  Systems which don't request their
IP address from dnsmasq don't provide dnsmasq with their MAC address
and thus dnsmasq doesn't give them a name.

Presumably these static IPs must be put into /etc/hosts on the dnsmasq
system, is this the only way of handling this?
