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

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 ...



I've seen this for ages on 2.4 and 2.6. Seems to be some kind of typo or something in several archs (my Blade 100 shows this in dmesg as well).
