Further investigation shows that if I connect the Gbit interface to a 10Mbs 
hub everything works ok, e.g. using the ksdevice=eth2 boot option works as 

I have narrowed this down to the following problem:  When the init process 
tries to configure the eth2 with dhcp it fail, but if I logon as root and run

/etc/init.d/network start

everything works ok.  Subsequent reboots also works ok because now the 
information is cached in /etc/dhcpc/.  If I remove the cached info the 
problem turn up again.

Do anyone know what could be different between init running the network start 
and when root does it?
