SubjectRe: IP autoconfig doesn't work in 2.3.46
   From: Alan Cox <alan@redhat.com>

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.

Later,
