Yes. And as you said, the other ones are more post-sarge
approaches. So let's go with this one.

Now, how to implement this? What first comes to mind is to add a
special field to /etc/network/devnames and use that file, since netcfg
already reads it. One could also add cardctl to pcmcia-cs-udeb and use
it to get the card name. The problem is that card names might contain
a colon so I'd have to add the field between the interface name and
the description. Or should it just write a list of PCMCIA interface
names in another file, perhaps?
