[oe] [PATCH] dhcp: Correct leases directory location

The DHCP client currently expects to be able to create a leases file in
"/var/lib/dhcp" as configured in dhcp3.inc. Recipe is currently creating a
directory called "/var/lib/dhcp3", resulting in the following error:

can't create /var/lib/dhcp/dhclient.eth0.leases

Correct directory naming to resolve error.

 Steve: This seems to be directy reversing a change you made. The commit
  message doesn't give me any idea of why you did it, can you remember?
