Subject[BUG 2.5.67 (and probably earlier)] /proc/dev/net doesnt show all net devices
Date
Summary: /proc/net/devices doesnt show all devices using cat. With dd all are 
available.

I tested a kernels prior to
http://linus.bkbits.net:8080/linux-2.5/cset@1.797.156.3
and it doesnt seem to have this problem.

If I do a
& cat /proc/net/dev
Inter-| Receive | Transmit
face |bytes packets errs drop fifo frame compressed multicast|bytes
packets errs drop fifo colls carrier compressed
lo: 784 10 0 0 0 0 0 0 784

eth1:536253967 10078459 0 0 0 0 0 0 3372254868
I get net devices till eth1, but eth2 and hsi0 are available nevertheless.
but if I do a

& dd if=/proc/net/dev bs=4096
