** Description changed: + [Impact] + + * netplan & networkd based systems typically await networking to be up + on boot, without any ability to specify that an interface should be + configured, but might not be online at boot. This is a backport of the + RequiredForOnline= feature to match optional=true in netplan. + + [Test Case] + + * Configure a netowkring interface using .link/.network file and specify RequiredForOnline=False + * Bring the interface down / offline it + * execute systemd-networkd-wait-online, which should exit immediately since no interfaces are required to be online + + [Regression Potential] + + * This adds a support for an additional stanza in the network files. + This stanza is not used by default. if the stanza is used, but older + networkd is in use, networkd will ignore this unknown stanza. Thus this + change is backward and forward compatible. The difference is that boot + is not blocked awaiting systemd-networkd-wait-online to timeout. + + [Other Info] + + * Original bug report + Add support for RequiredForOnline in networkd https://github.com/systemd/systemd/commit/c1a3890410f043fe09af8b139eb6bfe2832089be RequiredForOnline= denotes a link/network that does/does not require being up for systemd-networkd-wait-online to consider the system online; this makes it possible to ignore devices without modifying parameters to wait-online.
