Bug Description

I installed Ubuntu 15.10 in VMware Workstation 12 Player to give it a try and I noticed that the network disconnects and reconnects every several minutes. I can't see this in other virtual machines or in the host machine (which runs Ubuntu 14.04 LTS). Here is a part of the syslog:

It happens to me on one laptop from the three computers I have, so it is network adapter specific.

I also have networking problems on 15.10 but only on IPv6, I don't know if it can be related to this issue.
When I start the computer everything works, ipv4&6. After some time, which could be the DHCP renewal but I still have to verify, the IPv6 address is dropped by avahi (apparently). I experience no network disconnect, just address drop.

This wasn't happening on 15.04.
