Static network configuration support
Last modified: 2012-06-22 04:10:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently dracut-module-setup.sh will always configure dracut to use dhcp to configure a network environment.
But when the network env is configured to be a static network in first kernel, that code is broken, it will still pass cmdline like 'ip=eth0:dhcp' to dracut cmdline.d/40ip.conf.
That means when the machine is in a env w/o a dhcp server, network can't be setup correctly, any remote dump should fail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.configure a static network env
2.restart kdump service
3.crash the system
dracut will use dhcp to setup network
dracut will use a static configuration
