Subject[PATCH] drivers/pci:Broken link fixed
Date
From: cmps107-njupudi <njupudi@ucsc.edu>

Dell developed a way to consistently name devices,
and their last proposal was accepted under the name biosdevname.

Signed-off-by: Naga Venkata Sai Indubhaskar Jupudi <njupudi@ucsc.edu>

Proposal 1 provides a character device interface to ethernet devices.

Proposal 2 is implemented in the same way as proposal 1 except that
device nodes are created without any changes in the kernel.

Proposal 3 is an installer based proposal where it provides the user
with options to rename network interfaces.

Proposal 4 exports system firmware provided SMBIOS strings on
onboard devices to sysfs.

Proposal 5 uses the firmware provided index to derive ethN names

Proposal 6 is named as biosdevname and renames network interfaces
to a different names space and accepted upstream.
