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.
