    Well, no offense, but I'd think comments are necessary about no
    one bothering to try it and it not working. I've had an orinoco_cs
    device 'bob' using nameif for a while.

    There are some situations where you have to jump through hoops
    because it can't atomically swap two device names (i.e.,
    eth0 <-> eth1, but the code itself seems to work ok in use here...
