Public bug reported:

linux kernel 5.0.0-13
Kubuntu 19.04
hardware: old Dell laptop Inspiron 1720

After upgrading an old Dell laptop Inspiron 1720 (from 2007 I think) from 
Kubuntu 18.10 to 19.04, the result is a broken system:
booting takes + 5 minutes
looking at the boot messages I see "Failed to start Dispatcher daemon for 
systemd-networkd" and consequently Network Manager fails to run.
Eventually it reaches the desktop where it takes another 5 minutes to display 
the panel.
In a terminal it fails to execute any network command (ifconfig, ip) as well as 
"sudo" and "lshw".

If I boot with the previous kernel, the 4.18.0-18 of Kubuntu 18.10, it works 
without problem.
For now I have set its grub to start by default the 4.18 kernel instead of the 
5.0 one.

I tried running "apport-cli -f -p linux --save
kernel5.0onOldDellInspiron1720.apport" but that has been spitting out
periods ("....") for 10 minutes now and still hasn't finished.

dmesg output attached.
