Full details of this bug are available on the issue I filed upstream:

Essentially, in systemd-214+ (including current Arch systemd-215-4), systemd-networkd sends DHCP requests requesting a broadcast response. These broadcast responses are filtered on a number of VPS hosts (including Linode) rendering DHCP non-functional. The issue has been fixed upstream with the following commit:

Applying this patch to the Arch linux package (or simply reverting 63a070415db09f5b) would be appreciated.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't fix
Additional comments about closing:  Will be included with 216, and reverting isn't an option.

You'll need to backport this yourself. I'm not going to change an upstream config file for a pkgrel bump.
