Subject: eth1 became eth2, but dmesg still says eth1

Upon upgrading from 2.6.20.7 to 2.6.20.11, e1000 seems to be confused
about what the second ethernet interface is called.  Here's what dmesg
says:


Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - version 7.3.15-k2
Copyright (c) 1999-2006 Intel Corporation.
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:04:00.0[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:04:00.0 to 64

PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:04:00.1 to 64
e1000: 0000:04:00.1: e1000_probe: (PCI Express:2.5Gb/s:Width x4) 00:15:17:1a:69:d1
e1000: eth1: e1000_probe: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection
Ethernet Channel Bonding Driver: v3.1.1 (September 26, 2006)
bonding: MII link monitoring set to 100 ms


However the bond0 interface failed to come up, complaining that there
was no such interface as eth1.  I checked /proc/net/dev, and it listed
eth0 and _eth2_.  I changed the bonding configuration to use eth0 and
eth2 and it's working fine now.

Is this a known problem?  I skimmed the netdev archives but didn't see
anything.  Let me know if you need more info about my kernel config or
hardware.

Thanks,
-ryan
