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

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...
