I tried to reproduce the regression on Dockstar with 3.14.0 and
3.14.0-07247-gcd6362be, netconsole enabled, DHCP (dhclient).

I can neither reproduce any issues with ethernet before nor after
dhclient kicks in. I can also use netconsole just fine and see
plenty of kernel bootlog messages sent to netconsole receiver.

Can you _please_ share a full report how to properly reproduce it?
