Bug Description

I am booting an s390x VM with vlan & static ip= configuration on the kernel command line.

It appears that cloudinit is trying to parse the ipconfig results, and is failing.


cmdline - /proc/cmdline
net-encc000.2653.conf - the /run/net-encc000.2653.conf klibc ipconfig state file
encc000.2653.yaml - /run/netplan/encc000.2653.yaml which initramfs-tools generates, but cloud-init is not using
cloud-init-output.log & cloud-init.log - showing a crash traceback

Note this is similar to:

Although ip= on kernel commandline accepts PROTO static or none, the serialized klibc ipconfig files are always "none", thus cloud-init code needs to be adjusted to use "none" instead of "static"
