That's a (hotplug?) script that adds the =eth0.  So it's true, there's no
interface with 'eth0=eth0'.  I think the intent was to indicate the physical
interface for some logical interface (I would have thought that was already
accomplished with modprobe.conf and aliases, but maybe not).

Look at /etc/network/interfaces and the "mapping" option.  You just need to
tell it to ignore the mapping.  Unfortunately I can't tell you how :-(
