True, but so far I have to force link addrs, force promisc mode, and
now add a udev work-around ;-|

Strange thing is, when the interfaces get initialised as eth0/1/2 in
order, they all have the correct macs. When they appear out of order
(eth5/1/2, eth5/6/1 etc), at least one or more of the macs are messed

Once yesterday I saw them initialise in order, with correct macs. Have
not been able to repeat or figure out if there is some way of
triggering this correct behaviour.

Any more driver patches I can beta test?
