rpi3 latest update broke ethernet?

Postby Blodo » Fri Sep 06, 2019 9:57 pm

Weird thing after I ran an update on my rpi3: eth0 interface now has its mac as 00:00:00:00:00:00 by default leading to the interface being down by default, and the only way I could get it to connect to the ethernet was to manually set the mac address to the one recognised by my dhcp server. This of course did not persist between reboots, so I had to write a shell script and run it as a service before the network target:

Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh
ip link set dev eth0 down
ip link set dev eth0 address (default mac address here)
ip link set dev eth0 up


And only this way could I get the rpi to start being visible on the network again after a reboot. Not sure what failed, or why the default mac is now basically set to 0. The rpi is set to use systemd-networkd. Is it just me that had this problem or is this a known issue?

Systemd-networkd here without issue (multiple Pis). Output from `systemctl status systemd-networkd`?

I confirm the issue.
Raspberry Pi 3 B.
Full system update after more than a month, from kernel 5.2.2 to 5.2.11.
After the update and reboot, the Pi was not accessible via Ethernet.
I connected a keyboard and a monitor, and found that MAC address of the eth0 is set to 00:00:00:00:00:00.
At the moment, I am using the wlan interface only.

From the dmesg output before the update, using kernel 5.2.2:
Code: Select all
[   14.959188] smsc95xx 1-1.1:1.0 eth0: register 'smsc95xx' at usb-3f980000.usb-1.1, smsc95xx USB 2.0 Ethernet, b8:27:eb:25:16:7a


From the dmesg output after the update, using kernel 5.2.11:
Code: Select all
[   17.696724] smsc95xx 1-1.1:1.0 eth0: register 'smsc95xx' at usb-3f980000.usb-1.1, smsc95xx USB 2.0 Ethernet, 00:00:00:00:00:00


Output of ip link show eth0
Code: Select all

    link/ether 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

On armv7h (4.19.x series) without issue. Is the OP also running aarch64?

I reverted the kernel to 5.2.2, but it did not help. The MAC address was still all zeros.
But I noticed one more thing in dmesg outputs.
The original kernel 5.2.2:
Code: Select all
[    0.000000] Kernel command line: console=ttyS1,115200 console=tty0 root=PARTUUID=4e1954e1-02 rw rootwait smsc95xx.macaddr=b8:27:eb:25:16:7a audit=0

The kernel 5.2.11 after the update
Code: Select all
[    0.000000] Kernel command line: console=ttyS1,115200 console=tty0 root=PARTUUID=4e1954e1-02 rw rootwait smsc95xx.macaddr=00:00:00:00:00:00 audit=0

The kernel 5.2.2 after the revert
Code: Select all
[    0.000000] Kernel command line: console=ttyS1,115200 console=tty0 root=PARTUUID=4e1954e1-02 rw rootwait smsc95xx.macaddr=00:00:00:00:00:00 audit=0


The /boot/boot.txt contains:
Code: Select all
setenv bootargs console=ttyS1,115200 console=tty0 root=PARTUUID=${uuid} rw rootwait smsc95xx.macaddr="${usbethaddr}" audit=0

I also had the same problem.

I have an auto-update script running every week and it ran today, the eth0 interface disappeared and the MAC address in the dmesg logs also shows 00:00:00:00:00:00.

But I solved it here. Looking at what packages were updated I downgraded one and eth0 is working now.

The update script updated the raspberrypi-bootloader to:
Code: Select all
raspberrypi-bootloader-20190904-1-any.pkg.tar.xz


and with that I have the zeroed MAC address.

After downgrading that package to:

Code: Select all
raspberrypi-bootloader-20190828-1-any.pkg.tar.xz


I didn't have a zeroed MAC address anymore.

Probably you already know, but to downgrade just follow https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/do ... g_packages

Hope this information helps other people with the same issue

Thanks!
raspberrypi-bootloader 20190724 and 20190828 work correctly, MAC address is set correctly,
raspberrypi-bootloader 20190904 does not work correctly. MAC address is set to zeros.
Checked with both kernels I have: 5.2.2 and 5.2.11.

What's more,
raspberrypi-bootloader 20190831 seems to be the last properly working version,
raspberrypi-bootloader 20190903 is completely broken and makes the system unbootable. See the comments here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/commit/c99e3cee42b13ad26207931bc9b01c5798c171a8
raspberrypi-bootloader 20190904 boots the system, but sets the eth0 MAC address to zeros.

Confirmed, ethernet was broken with alarm/raspberrypi-bootloader 20190909-1 - no u-boot env $usbethaddr (booting with zeroed MAC).

Workaround:
1. systemd-networkd MAC spoofing (not as good as I expected - wrong uuid generated and my dhcp server goes crazy) - very easy to implement if console inaccesible with any sd reader on another computer:
Code: Select all
cat /etc/systemd/network/00-default.link
[Match]
MACAddress=00:00:00:00:00:00

[Link]
MACAddress=b8:27:eb:b5:b6:a2
NamePolicy=kernel database onboard slot path


2. u-boot /boot/boot.txt (.scr) correction (do not forget re-run ./mkscr with installed uboot-tools):
Code: Select all
# add this string before bootargs with your real MAC
setenv usbethaddr B8:27:EB:B5:B6:A2
