Hmmm,  the old code would have assigned "eth0" in that case, new code
would assign "eth1".  Other difference is in the case of whitespace.
scanf("white  space0", "white space%d", &i)
because any whitespace matches multiple whitespace characters.

Is it worth making a separate explicit match routine?
