I found AR#59073 which seems to describe what I wish to accomplish (but for petalinux 2013.10): do not start the ethernet controller at boot-up. However in petalinux 2015.2.1 it seems impossible to disable init-ifupdown.
I don't want to use DHCP to get an IP-address and I also don't want all my boards to start up with the same fixed IP-address. I want to set the IP-address at the end of boot-up with a script of my own. The latter is easy, but how to do the first?

Argh, and if I manually set CONFIG_ROOTFS_PACKAGES_INIT_IFUPDOWN=n then I also don't get the loopback interface.
Is it really so extraordinary to have several Zynq's running linux in a larger setup?
And does Xilinx really expect all users to either use DHCP or rebuild the rootfs for every machine?

Not really. I usually set an invalid IP address now, but it's not quite the same as having the interface down at startup.
