[Bug 160436] No ethernet after cold boot; works after warm boot

Public bug reported:

After the dist-upgrade from feisty to gutsy, ethernet does not work after a cold boot. The NIC is a Broadcom NetXtreme BCM 5171 using the tg3 driver. /etc/init.d/networking restart does not bring network up. Instead it issues a:
SIOCSIFADDR: no such device
error for eth0

After the cold boot, lshw and lspci do not show up the NIC hardware.
After a warm boot without any changes to the system, the NIC comes up
and network is OK.

Please find attached the output from dmesg, lshw, lspci, ifconfig and
syslog, each in a version after cold boot and after warm boot.

I am not sure, if this is a kernel issue. Maybe this is an upstart
