This update cause serious problem if interface using DHCP.
The interface doesn't have IP after device bootup,

I'm the author of the mentioned patch and I'm sure you have a configuration error on your side.

How should dropbear listen on an interface/ip which does not exists? It worked all the time because of a bug (see for more details)

What you want, is a dropbear that listens on any ip-address. To archive this, do not bind dropbear to a particular interface.

A even better solution would be to use a dropbear hotplug script as described in I'm doing it this way and it works like a charm.

After bootup, dropbear not working, luci still working,
so restart service then ssh work again.

dropbear working before the patch, I haven't change the settings.
so I'm not sure how to fix it.
