[Bug 391622] [NEW] initramfs-tools uses dhcp even with a static ip address in comand line

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: initramfs-tools

My initramfs-tools version: 0.92bubuntu29
Noticed this on a jaunty based clonezilla-live cd, booted with a cmdline like:

boot=live union=aufs netboot="nfs"
ip=192.168.171.121::192.168.171.254:255.255.255.0::eth0
nfsroot=192.168.137.1:/live quickreboot noprompt noprompt nolocales

What happens is that no matter the ip= parameter, the network ends up
being "configured" by dhcp so booting just hangs when there's no dhcp
offer.

The simple fix for me is attached. Changing this and rebuilding the
initrd worked for me. Someone with more experience with initramfs-tools
should look into how to make this work for all people (many of them do
use dhcp), since this might break things for them.
