Description of problem:
Unable to boot with certain kernels.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with 1776 or 1777 kernel
Actual Results: System hangs with error message when starting eth0.
(I will attach exact error message to this bug as soon I reboot again and copy it down; can't find it in logs.)
Expected Results: System should succeed at starting up eth0 and continue boot process.
Because it happens as the "network" service starts up, I've assigned this to "initscripts". I believe this is related to the kernel version as well, as kernel 1773 does not perturb this situation, but 1776 and 1777 do.
I've tried in both permissive and enforcing selinux mode; no difference noted.
Determining IP information for eth0... SIOCSIFFLAGS Device or resource busy
SIOCSIFFLAGS Device or resource busy
That's the exact error message.
(It prints the busy message twice, and I realize the first part there is the
standard output, just putting it there for context.)
