I'm using a similar setup plus udev to distinguish between the
network devices of my openmoko and my n900:

from /etc/network/interfaces:

# n900
allow-hotplug n900
iface n900 inet static
        address ...

# freerunner
allow-hotplug openmoko
iface openmoko inet static
        address ...

from a custom udev rule:

# n900
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DEVPATH=="*/net/usb[0-9]", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0421", ATTRS{idProduct}=="01c8", ATTRS{manufacturer}=="Nokia", ATTRS{product}=="N900 (PC-Suite Mode)", NAME="n900"

# freerunner
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0525", ATTRS{idProduct}=="a4a2", ATTRS{product}=="RNDIS/Ethernet Gadget", NAME="openmoko"
