Subject: IFF_RUNNING without carrier after reboot

Hi guys,

I have a really strange issue with the 2.6.28 kernel. So when I boot
that kernel and then call "ifconfig eth0 up && ifconfig" it shows eth0
with the flag RUNNING enabled. Even if no cable is plugged into that

If I then actually do plug on in and wait a few seconds (until the
lights blink) and then unplug everything is perfectly fine and it
behaves form there on normal

It is really only after boot and the 2.6.27 kernel behaves as expected.
Any ideas what's wrong here. My machine is an X61 laptop with e1000e
based Ethernet card.
