Hello Fritz,
I had seen " set up a 10 MB "new world boot" partition" in your email also with remark about deleting "/" from label which was followed by "put osx into sleep". This is really bad handling, and the best is to reinstall linux after that as nobody know how it was rolled back from osx to olderLinux instance. This will make clean statement about possible bugs or installation issues as your previous errors was caused by touching disks across different OSes in parralel.
If you want dual boot with hibernation or suspend to RAM, then use reboot when loading other OS or mount disks from other OS only as read only. And also, don't mount "NewWorld bootblock" in any OS.
PS: MAC OS X on Power architecture had latest ussable version (Tiger) for IBM Power CPU which is unsupported since 2007. Next possible version of MAC OS X (Leopard) was optimized for Intel CPU and it was also recompiled for Power architecture, but it had performace degradation when it was run on Power CPU and is also unsuported since 2009. So, issues with MAC OS X and other OS is techniclly out of scope for anybody due to end of life from Apple vendor. No matter if Linux users are affected by running unsupported commercial OS.

Hello Fritz,
Did you had hibernated MAC OS X with connected disks which held Linux / yaboot and performed disk layout reorganization? I will not comment that.
Regarding workarrounds, you can fix upstream kernel as is opensource. Network using sungem is working to me also in kernel 4.0.2 (vanilla). Workarround will fix the problem, but it does not provide solution.

Question 1:  Just rebooted into OSX and put it to sleep.  I wanted to add the reminder that on this install that "worked" I didn't format the partitions manually . . . I wiped the partitions and made them "free space" and then used the "install alongside OSX" option, so the installer set up everything, Yaboot flagged as "boot" . . . .

But, even though this started as what I thought was an "installer" issue, which in some sense it is, since I couldn't get the install to go through using "manual" . . . this now seems like a kernel crash issue, as we can get to the U-MATE splash . . . but system then dumps before Lightdm window opens . . . .

Statement 2:  OK on the "fix the kernel" . . . way above my skillset, I'm just an end user.  And, glad you could fix the ethernet problem . . . probably be Thurs or Friday before I have time for messing with it again.
