Thanks for the quick reply. It seems that all the upgraded systems use 
/etc/init.d/network, e.g.

#! /bin/sh
ifconfig lo
route add -net
ifconfig eth0 ${IPADDR} netmask ${NETMASK} broadcast ${BROADCAST}
route add -net ${NETWORK}
[ "${GATEWAY}" ] && route add default gw ${GATEWAY} metric 1

Is the user supposed to migrate the settings manually from /etc/init.d/network 
to /etc/network/interfaces? If yes, this should be documented in the upgrade 
release notes.
