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.
