Serge,

I posted a fix to Dave Miller which was included in net-2.6 and merged
in 2.6.26-rc1.

This one should fix your problem for sysfs.

There is another fix to do in order to avoid name conflicts with network
interfaces belonging to different namespaces, eg. allows to rename
veth1234 to eth0 without conflicting with the network device belonging
in init_net, I send this patch to container@ first to have it merged
with the sysfs patchset.

Thanks,

-- Daniel
