To set up networking. * Discover that the device never comes up because, networking is not configured correctly. [Regression Potential] Should be back to original behavior before ipv6 support was introduced in the past 2 or 3 SRUs. [Other Info] * There are a number of other issues in this code base that are not solved by this fix. - The ?*:?*:?*:?*: use case falls through to the default case, and likely breaks there. As such static assignment via ip= appears broken - * The networking configuration does not strictly follow the kernel documentation as described https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/filesystems/nfs/nfsroot.txt . This should be fixed. This bug is a regression of changes made under bug 1628306. ====================Original Bug Description Follows================== initramfs-tools 0.122ubuntu8.3 introduced a serious regression where networking is not initialized when the boot option "ip=dhcp" is provided. We are seeing this problem in AWS, but cannot confirm if this issue is specific to AWS or will occur with different hardware or in different environments. Removing "ip=dhcp" from the boot options with 0.122ubuntu8.3 results in networking being configured. The issue does not occur with 0.122ubuntu8.2 or previous versions when "ip=dhcp" is set. AWS has no console so debugging is not a trivial task. I do have a console log with some output, and will update this bug shortly with it.
