Yes, in a FreeBSD 11.0 VM, I had already verified this workaround works:

in /etc/rc.conf:

ifconfig_XN0="DHCP -rxcsum"

Note that you only need to disable Rx checksum offload, as the issue is with
UDP BOOTP packets received with an offloaded but "invalid" UDP checksum.

However, I expect this workaround to have an unnecessary performance impact on
receive packet throughput over xn0; basically you're using a 'big hammer' to
completely disable an offload only because one application (dhclient) can't
deal with a couple of UDP packets.
