Like Matthew said, any code that assumes a specific interface prefix, be it eth%d or wlan%d, is buggy. Users are allowed to choose random interface names for their interfaces, often via nameif(8) program. My own ethtool program is broken in this regard...

Just wondering about the release schedule for ethtool?
