Subjectni52 device name strangeness
Hi,

I'm using two network cards under 2.1.48, a 3c905 (eth0) and a
ni5210 (eth1). If I do a 'ifconfig eth0 up', everything works fine, but
when I do 'ifconfig eth1 up', the interface does not show up when I run
ifconfig. Then I tried ifconfig -a, which gave this result:

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Bcast:127.255.255.255 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP BROADCAST LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:3584 Metric:1

What should say eth1 is instead \t\t\t\t. When I did a modprobe
ni52 by hand it also resulted in the four tabs and then ": NI5210 found at
0x300, Memaddr: 0xdc000, Memsize: 8192, IRQ 5 (assigned and not
checked!)." Here is my /etc/conf.modules:

alias eth0 3c59x
alias eth1 ni52
options ni52 irq=5 memstart=0xdc000 io=0x300 memend=0xde000

Any ideas? I've also tried using ni52 as eth0, but it made no difference.
