Description Nathaniel McCallum 2017-08-10 09:30:48 EDT
https://github.com/dracutdevs/dracut/pull/266/commits/17927597213854b2fdf15461353882339fdb5051

This is fixed upstream. In particular, this slows down boot significantly when Clevis is used.

Hm I guess that nobody boots from wifi connection.
Comment 3 Nathaniel McCallum 2017-08-10 10:01:04 EDT
My understanding is that dracut doesn't even support it. But without this patch dracut will still try dhcp on these interfaces, which results in a major slowdown.
