[DSE-Dev] Bug#756729: Bug#756729: selinux-policy-default: Setting SELinux to enforce results in not configured network interface at boot time

Hello Mika,

some more observations:

I found a workaround: Changing 'allowed-hotplug eth0' to
'auto eth0' in /etc/network/interfaces fixes the problem
for me.

In the cases where this problem occurs, the
/sys/class/net/eth0/operstate is 'down'.  Therefore the
hotplug function will not pick up the device.

But why and how does (not) enforcing influence the
setting of the device's operstate?

Kind regards
