Allow FULL control of DHCP option types
Many of the current DHCP options are needlessly restricted and limited to a particular type, for example: 125 is HEX and 66 is TEXT. Some systems that use these options require a different value type. In the case of option 125, Mitel phone systems require this as a string.
We should stop restricting the DHCP option type and instead default to the expected value but allow users to configure this as per their network requirements.

we have the exact same issues with 165,166,199 for Dell Wyse Management Suite that require STRING! please add support for string.
