I will run tcpdump on the server as I run udhcpc on the client
for Linux 3.4 vs 4.7

Do you know what would make auto-negotiation fail at 100 Mbps
on 4.7? (whereas it succeeds on 3.4)

(Thinking out loud) If the problem were in auto-negotiation,
then if should work if I hard-code speed and duplex using
ethtool, right? (IIRC, hard-coding doesn't help.)

Regards.
