Precise DHCP bridge with bond doesn't come up correctly

Bug Description

Trying to port some of our KVM hosts from Lucid to Precise and the networking that worked correctly on Lucid fails to work correctly on Precise.

My machines take ages to boot. I have no IP address on the bridge device. Nothing seems to resolve this issue at all other than manually adding an IP address to the bridge interface.

I can see similar issues in Bug #1003656, which apparently are fixed. But if those fixes are related, they are not working for me.

I've compared my config to the examples at and cannot see any obvious issues with my config.

I've attached /etc/network and /var/log/upstart from an example machine in the hope that they're useful
