2011-01-26 / Fedora 15 Changing The Network Device Naming Scheme

eth? という名前から以下のように変わるそう.

- em[1-N] for on-board (embedded) NICs (# matches chassis labels)
- pci<slot>#<port> for cards in PCI slots, port 1..N
- NPAR & SR-IOV devices add a suffix of _<vf>, from 0..N depending on the number of Partitions or Virtual Functions exposed on each port.
- Other Linux conventions, such as .<vlan> and :<alias> suffixes remain unchanged and are still applicable.
