[lwip-devel] RFC: etharp and dhcp timers in tcpip.c

the wrapper api (in the src/api/ directory) and mainly tcpip.c currently
instantiates a thread for running the time-out driven TCP state machine.

How about generalizing this thread for *all* lwIP timeouts, i.e. adding
DHCP timeouts and ARP timeouts?

Currently, developers have to implement their own mechanisms to drive
those timers, even when including the lwIP /src/api code, which often
leads to confusion or race conditions when not properly implemented.

I would suggest renaming tcpip.c to lwip_thread.c and add calls to
DHCP and ARP timers.
