You can also apparently specify "hwaddress" in the stanzas (once you know
them), so that you can autoload the modules and have eth0 and eth1 assigned
consistently.  I would guess that's the point of having hwaddress.  It
would look
something like:

     hwaddress ether 01:23:45:67:89:AB

where the last field comes from "/sbin/ifconfig -a".
