The shared hosts file has been a feature here since the second came 
online it round '00 to run an harbor freight milling machine, 

And I'm not sure in a pi's config, where to put the net.ifnames=0.

/boot/cmdline.txt maybe?  You have grub to splice all that together, but 
the pi's are u-boot, as most of the arm stuff is. But with the pi4 
coming online, with 4Gigs a dram, I'd sure like to see grub-2 ported to 
arms.  That would greatly simplicate kernel swapping.
