    SubjectRe: IP autoconfig doesn't work in 2.3.46

    On the other hand for 2.4 we can only do this if someone has or
    will do the usermode initrd for it and put it up somewhere. Post
    2.4 it has-to-go. DHCP is the routine system now, we already cant
    handle it without an initrd

    I agree with you, but I think it's unwise to delete it for 2.4.x

    There simply have been too many new-platform bootstraps this
    little "hack" has helped out, and until something which really
    replaces it, and is as simple, comes along, we would be
    wise to keep it around.
