Sorry, continuing this discussion doesn't make sense. You have the same 
hw, so just try enabling netconsole with 3.14 and use dhcpcd from 
userland (this does the final reset here which hangs.

But don't suggest me (or insist on) a time consuming and totally useless 
bisect when I already know what makes the problem to appear (100% 
reliable here).

I have better ways to waste my time.
