With swarm running on 2.6 I just saw the net dev names are
not set correctly.  See below.

eth%d: SiByte Ethernet at 0x10064000, address: 00-02-4C-FE-0C-B2                
eth%d: enabling TCP rcv checksum                                                

It appears alloc_netdev() assigns this initial name and nobody
later resets it to a more meaningful name.  

Any body has a clue here?  I don't think it is driver's job though ...

Thanks.
