Subjectlinux-2.6.23-git3: Many sysfs-related warnings in dmesg

There are many traces like this in my dmesg from 2.6.23-git3 (they don't
appear for vanilla 2.6.23):

<4>sysfs: duplicate filename 'ethxx1' can not be created
WARNING: at /home/rafael/src/linux-2.6/fs/sysfs/dir.c:425 sysfs_add_one()

net ethxx1: device_rename: sysfs_create_symlink failed (-17)
sysfs: duplicate filename 'eth1' can not be created

Everything seems to work, but this just looks fishy.

I reported it for at least one -mm of the recent -mm kernels, but no one
