I've been digging a bit into running Fedora as a an guest in the most
common virtulzation solution out there most notably running as a guest
in hyperv/kvm/vbox/vmware/xen, which was spurred by a discussion in the
QA community and crawling through the internet I found 1 bug  that
affects all of them and one issue limit to hyper-v as in networking not
working out of the box .
Digging to the root cause of this leads me to this when users use the
legacy tulip network driver as is mentioned there in that blog post
"The real problem here is that the device does not support carrier
detection via ethtool or mii-tool. If the driver supported carrier
detection, NetworkManager would bring it up automatically."
( With an obvious workaround if that's the case simply disable NM
configure and use initscripts network service instead )
The mentioned issue has been reported upstream here 
So my question are these.
1. What's the current status on an fix for that tulip kernel driver bug?
2. What ever happened to the native hyper-v drivers that Microsoft
3. If those drivers have not been rejected and simply are stuck in
staging? is there something preventing us pulling into Fedora and
enabling them by default to improve the situation?
