[IPCONFIG]: ip_auto_config fix
The following commandline: root=/dev/mtdblock6 rw rootfstype=jffs2 ip=192.168.1.10:::255.255.255.0:localhost.localdomain:eth1:off console=ttyS0,115200 makes ip_auto_config fall back to DHCP and complain "IP-Config: Incomplete network configuration information." depending on if CONFIG_IP_PNP_DHCP is set or not. The only way I can make ip_auto_config accept my IP config is to add an entry for the server IP: ip=192.168.1.10:192.168.1.15::255.255.255.0:localhost.localdomain:eth1:off I think this is a bug since I am not using a NFS root FS. The following patch fixes the above problem. From: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Davem said (in February!): Well, first of all the change in question is not in 2.4.x either. I just checked the current 2.4.x GIT tree and the test is exactly: if (ic_myaddr == INADDR_NONE || #ifdef CONFIG_ROOT_NFS (MAJOR(ROOT_DEV) == UNNAMED_MAJOR && root_server_addr == INADDR_NONE && ic_servaddr == INADDR_NONE) || #endif ic_first_dev->next) { which matches 2.6.x I even checked 2.4.x when it was branched for 2.5.x and the test was the same at the point in time too. Looking at the proposed change a bit it appears that it is probably correct, as it's trying to check that ROOT_DEV is nfs root. But if it is correct then the UNNAMED_MAJOR comparison in the same code block should be removed as it becomes superfluous. I'm happy to apply this patch with that modification made.
