DHCP stalls boot

Bootstrap can take several minutes, apparently due to lengthy timeouts in DHCP.
DAEMON 'DHCP': DHCP timeout shift: 8 secs (try 1) DAEMON 'DHCP': DHCP timeout shift: 8 secs (try 2) DAEMON 'DHCP': DHCP for /dev/net/marvell_yukon/0, status: Operation timed out KERN: ata 2 error: timeout waiting for interrupt KERN: ata 2 error: RecoverLostInterrupt: lost interrupt, status 0x50
Once network server is reconfigured to static, problem goes away.
Initially reported in #5979, because disabling IDE DMA is a sort of workaround (inasmuch as it breaks network server configuration.)
