Bug#832342: sitesummary: SiteSummary.pm fails to extract information w/ recent stretch linux-images

Hm, looking at a test laptop running testing, it look like the output
from 'ifconfig -a' changed too much for the code I proposed to work.  It
need to identify ethernet devices completely differently.

It is the 'maybe other devices' that bothers me. :)

The idea is to have some hardware specific value that do not change
every boot.  It is not the only identifier.

Happy hacking
