gdhcp: Set client state to INIT_SELECTING on restart
With the previous behavior, we would end up sending a discover message and then ignoring the reply due to the client state mismatch, so a restart would never result in successful acquisition of a lease. RFC 2131 specifies that the client should return to INIT state in various restart scenarios. However, also note that it would not make sense in any case to send a discover message and ignore the reply.
