    I like uniformity.
    Either all eth cards should have their address in dmesg, or none.
    Almost all do.

    And: ifconfig does not give the card types.
    So presently one needs both boot messages and ifconfig.

    And: in some situations the system does not boot because of
    eth numbering mixup, and one never gets the opportunity to
    ask ifconfig.
