I take it that netcfg's use of link detection doesn't make it default to
eth1 in this case?

The rule could go in rootskel for arm only, but it would need to be one
that only affected the nslu2 and not other arms. If that is not possible
in a udev rule, we would have to make rootskel move the rule into place
during early boot if it detected an nslu2.
