I can also easily recreate this by calling dhcpcd e.g. when the cable isn't in
the socket yet. If i attach the cable then I see the interface coming up,
going down, and then the NETDEV watchdog message.

Unfortunatly this usually means that dhcpcd goes hanging. ifconfig hangs too
if I try to use it, and rebooting must be forced with sysrq and an oops a
alt-sysrq-o for poweroff...
