Bug#405421: netcfg: Unknown IEEE 1394/FireWire interface reported as "Ethernet or Fast Ethernet"

Package: netcfg
Version: 1.32
Severity: normal

d-i detects my FireWire card, but doesn't recognize the model as lspci:

01:01.2 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Ricoh Co Ltd R5C552 IEEE 1394 Controller
(rev 04)

Instead, it reports it as "Ethernet or Fast Ethernet", which is

Unless you want to implement a way to distinguish Ethernet and FireWire,
a simple fix would be to change 

Template: netcfg/internal-eth
Type: text
_Description: Ethernet or Fast Ethernet

for something like
_Description: Ethernet or IEEE 1394

I've experienced this on a single machine, but if I read netcfg-common.c
right, the bug should happen for all 1394 devices.
