    Didn't the same thing happen in the 2.2 -> 2.4
    transition? I believe it was for all PCI devices.
    And I thought there was a boot arg something
    like pci=reverse. Does it still exist?

    Subject: ok, which wise guy did this?



    I just booted my spanking new P4 HT PC last night using 2.5.58
    and to my dissapointment the enumeration of the ethx devices is
    reversed. I have 5 ethernet ports on this; eth0-4 on 2.4.x are now listed
    as eth4-0. This is rude.
    I immediately pointed a finger at monsieur J Garzik (thinking ethernet,
    PCI enumeration hmm) but he has denied any responsibility ;-> ;-> He
    thinks it may be the sysfs people.
    Can anyone give justification for this? Regardless of justification
    can we have some form of backward compatibility flag?

    cheers,
    jamal
