Adding DHCP Static Mapping redirects you to the wrong page

- Go to Status > DHCP Leases (status_dhcp_leases.php)
- Click the + button to add a static mapping
- This takes you to "services_dhcp_edit.php"
- Configure the static mapping and click Save
- This takes you to services_dhcp.php (Server > DHCP Server)
What if I want to add many static mappings? I have to navigate back to the status_dhcp_leases.php page manually to get back to where I was so I can add more static mappings.
I think that after adding a static mapping, it should take me back to the status_dhcp_leases.php page automatically instead of the services_dhcp.php page, especially if that's where I was to start with. I should also be apply to "Apply Changes" from the status_dhcp_leases.php page to apply the new static mappings.
The redirect does what it's supposed to do – It returns you to the page listing the settings for that interface. It isn't meant to return you to where you came from originally. I suppose it could, but it would require a bit of extra logic to accomplish. Probably not something we'd do ourselves, but if someone submitted a patch/pull request it might be considered.
The static leases will not be moved away from the DHCP server settings. The leases view is a common view for all interfaces. The static mappings are a per-interface setting and not a global setting. It does not make sense to move them.
