rpi: USB Ethernet broken in 4.15-rc8
Last modified: 2018-02-12 06:19:46 UTC
Booting a 4.15-rc3 or 4.15-rc8 kernel together with the matching 4.15-rcX .dtb on Raspberry Pi 3 (aarch64) or Raspberry Pi 2 (armv7hl) results in no eth0 network interface.
Workaround: use 4.14 dtb with 4.15 kernel - requires multiversion(dtb) or lock, but won't help newly built images.
Supposedly this is fixed by this patch not yet merged:
Fixed in 4.15.1.
