Bug#407460: USB ethernet interface renamed after installation on NSLU2 which causes the system to be inaccessible

Well, I still believe this is a problem with udev.  CCing Marco.

Marco, a while ago, you suggested that the problem could be due to


but I still see the problem with 2.6.20 which includes the patch that
apparently fixes 389250. Do you any further ideas ?

Martin, in the meantime, what do you think about adding a script to
the installer to add the following rule to

# Built-in Ethernet Adapter (NPE-B microcode not present)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="ixp4xx_mac", NAME="eth1"

It is a hack, but adding this rule causes the USB Ethernet adapter to
be named eth0 as opposed to eth1_rename. The system would therefore be
accessible after an installation without the NPE-B microcode, which
means that we could downgrade the severity of the bug. I'm not sure
where to put such a script in the installer though.
