    I also can't get networking up on current bk, I don't know if this is
    the same problem, the system did not hang (I'm not running NIS?).

    I also got that "sender address length == 0" message, I have not seen it
    before, it seems to be output by the "ip -o link".

    During boot:

    [ ... ]
    Enabling local filesystem quotas: [ OK ]
    Enabling swap space: [ OK ]
    /bin/cat: /proc/ksyms: No such file or directory
    INIT: Entering runlevel: 3
    Entering non-interactive startup
    Setting network parameters: [ OK ]
    Bringing up interface lo: [ OK ]
    sender address length == 0
    sender address length == 0
    Starting system logger: [ OK ]
    Starting kernel logger: [ OK ]
    Starting portmapper: [ OK ]
    Starting NFS file locking services:
    [ ... ]

    After logging in:

    [root@elm3b79 root]# ifup eth0
    sender address length == 0
    [root@elm3b79 root]# ip -o link
    sender address length == 0
    [root@elm3b79 root]# dmesg | grep eth0
    eth0: Digital DS21140 Tulip rev 33 at 0xf8800000, 00:00:BC:0F:03:EB, IRQ 36.
