The system hangs in linux at bootup if the linux ethernet driver is started and no ethernet cable is connected.

Boot from NAND Flash with u-boot environment variable ip=DHCP or ip=192.168.xxx.xxx.

Problem occurs on the freescale eval board (Sabre SD) boards and on our own board.

The cpu seems to go idle mode. We use the standard kernel configuration

CPU:  iMX6 Solo, latest BSP  4.1.0
