Interface naming in linprocfs
for some time now I have been somewhat annoyed by the Linux kind
of network adapter names put to display in "/proc/net/dev".
Imagine now that we would revert the file to be displaying
the BSD kernel names instead. What negative effects or failures
are we to expect from such a change?
At present "ifconfig", "netstat", and "route" use the BSD names.
A priori I know of no utility the depends on Linux naming.
Should one influence the corresponding functionality in
to compile into either convention, based on a macro?
