    Subject2.6.20/2.6.20-rc7 : ethX renumbered
    Date
    Hello,

    I'm facing something quite strange... When booting one of these kernels
    (it's a new machine, I've not been running older kernels), the boot message
    says :

    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:04:00.0[A] -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 19
    sky2 v1.10 addr 0xff8fc000 irq 19 Yukon-EC (0xb6) rev 2
    sky2 eth0: addr 00:18:f3:e0:5d:d4
    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:03:00.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
    sky2 v1.10 addr 0xff7fc000 irq 16 Yukon-EC (0xb6) rev 2
    sky2 eth1: addr 00:18:f3:e0:36:fd

    So, I'm expecting two interfaces : eth0 and eth1

    Unfortunately, at the end of the boot process, I can find eth1 and eth2,
    something/somewhat/someone has renumbered them ;

    eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:18:F3:E0:36:FD
    BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
    Interrupt:16

    eth2 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:18:F3:E0:5D:D4
    inet addr:192.168.1.3 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
    inet6 addr: fe80::218:f3ff:fee0:5dd4/64 Scope:Link
    UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:42780 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:25519 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:61859841 (58.9 MiB) TX bytes:2031644 (1.9 MiB)
    Interrupt:19

    This does also occurs when I boot in single user mode, so I did a quick check
    at the processes running then, and found udevd, but there is no reference to
    ethX in the configuration files, only veth :

    root@riri:/Kernels/External# cd /etc/udev/
    root@riri:/etc/udev# grep -r eth *
    rules.d/90-modprobe.rules:ENV{VIO_TYPE}=="network",
    RUN+="/sbin/modprobe -Qba ibmveth"
    rules.d/90-modprobe.rules:ENV{VIO_TYPE}=="vlan",
    RUN+="/sbin/modprobe -Qba iseries_veth"

    Is it something expected ? Or is it because Sky2 is still EXPERIMENTAL ?

    Regards,
    Paul
