Bug Description

SRU Justification:

Impact:

BL460Gen9 does not get IP addresses on both the NIC ports with Ubuntu 14.04/14.04.1
The NIC card in the blade is "Broadcom Corporation BCM57840 NetXtreme II 10/20-Gigabit Ethernet".
The NIC port 1 does not get an IP address both during install and after install.
I have attached the dmesg and lspci logs captured from the installer.

Steps to reproduce:
start installation process but kernel does not get IP address on port1 but port2 works fine.
Looks like Broadcom ethernet driver issue.

It seems upstream has this fix and below patch was suggested by Broadcom team which fixes this issue.
Below is the patch that Qlogic has provided, that fixes the issue.
http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/358990/

Fix:
apply upstream commit: dad91ee478c7f39e04a33272732147b8c274bb58

Test:
Boot the system and see if we get both nics working.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-trusty' to 'verification-done-trusty'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
