For some months, Tumbleweed displays IP addresses on the serial console,
as in:

Welcome to openSUSE Tumbleweed 20170617 - Kernel 4.12.0-rc5-1.g270295f-lpae
(ttyAMA0).

eth0: <IPv4> <IPv6>


raspi2 login:

(ttyAMA0).

eth0: <IPv4> <IPv6>


raspi2 login:
[...]

Annoyingly this output keeps repeating every few minutes, so that useful
kernel output may scroll out of screen over time.

I don't see that and have Tw current. I see the openSUSE greeting and
version identification and network connection, but only once. and this is
a new install, second day.

Previously, the static banner was displayed only once, and pressing
ENTER was an easy enough way to get a new login prompt with banner.

By my reading of /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/90-issue-generator.rules,
issue-generator should only be called when net devices are
added/removed, which does not seem to be happening in my case (judging
by /run/issue timestamp).

Why is /etc/issue printed more than once? The IP addresses don't change.

I don't see it on my five boxes.

Thanks for that input, Patrick.

I see it on pretty much all of my ARM boxes (more than five).

Most of these are zypper dup'ed system, but I've also seen it with
recent JeOS images.

Since you're not seeing the same, I've filed it as a bug:
