	Hello Andreas,

  I've tested your script and adapted a bit, it works well and solves
my problem :-) You'll find my version attached.
  I've still one thing I don't understand : what is "blacklist" and
"ps3" pre-requisites to this script ?
  About 'udevsettle', I think it's useless as the prereq gives udev
script which already do it.

  I've found in initramfs's init script the way to give back the real
Ethernet DEVICE (in /conf/param.conf), so this script don't touch live
script and should be also correct for standard initramfs-tools.
