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
