I've upgraded to kernel-4.15.3-300.fc27.aarch64 which landed in Fedora
27 repos but the wired networking / DHCP still do not work with that
I don't have serial console to do interactive troubleshooting so
I don't really know what is happening there ... checking the journal
after I've rebooted back to 4.13.9-300.fc27.aarch64, there does not
even seem to be a record of boot into that 4.15.3, so the problem
likely isn't the networking at all -- the kernel simply does not boot.
So 4.15.x has been solid for me on my two Pine64s which is the same
SoC without the network issues I saw with 4.14.
I can't even begin to debug it further, I'm sorry but if you're flying
blind without a console I have zero ability to use telepathy to try
and magically guess at the issues.
