Description of problem:
There seem to be two problems with the handling of network interfaces on resume
from suspsend. 1) Even if NO interfaces are up at suspend time and NO interfaces
are supposed to come up at boot time, all interfaces attempt to come up after a
resume. 2) They do not seem to all try to come up at the same time. In fact,
in a laptop with 3 network interfaces (long story), one PCMCIA interface
attempts to come up first. After it fails, the built-in interface and the
PCMCIA wireless card attempt to come up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.install network interface
3.install RH 7.2.92

Actual Results: eth0 attempted to DHCP for an address
Expected Results: The laptop should have resumed without bringing up the
This is REALLY annoying. Not nearly so bad as 7.2 (where the card was left in a
bad state), but still REALLY annoying. Especially if you have a standard 100Tx
interface and a wireless interface.
This is handled by apmd.
This should be better now.
