Seems to me like we're at the point where considering a straight revert
of the SRU would be in order (and I'm certainly considering it for the
short term), in order to move forward again at a later time when this is
more solid -- not that the end goal is still going to be happening
(though maybe not in 16.04), that is to gradually remove klibc from the
initramfs. That *will* require changes, such as we see here. If you
never fail, it's because you're not innovating...
The changes here were motivated by providing IPv6 support for MaaS
deployments in v6-only and mixed networks.
>From my understanding of things, we've now fixed (in 0.122ubuntu8.4) the
issues with ip=dhcp and some other ip= forms being parsed incorrectly.
There are still two outstanding issues:
- boot speed (I suspect there is only a limited amount of things we can do
about this, given the use of dhclient).
- "portfast behavior", which is how we handle delays in getting a response
from a DHCP server. There was definitely a regression there, for which I have a
fix in my ppa at ppa:cyphermox/maas.
Are there any other outstanding issues? If so, what kernel command-line
are you using, and please include the exact messages on screen (or in
logs) so we can know what we're dealing with.
