On my hppa machine, my network interface get assigned a new device name on each system startup, or if I rmmod and modprobe the driver module. The strange thing is that the MAC adress does not change at all. My /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules contains several entries fot that network interface. It looks, for example, like this:
Code:

# This file was automatically generated by the /lib/udev/write_net_rules
# program run by the persistent-net-generator.rules rules file.
#
# You can modify it, as long as you keep each rule on a single line.

# net device ()
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="08:00:09:0a:3a:49", NAME="eth0"

# net device ()
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="08:00:09:0a:3a:49", NAME="eth1"

# net device ()
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="08:00:09:0a:3a:49", NAME="eth2"

# net device ()
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="08:00:09:0a:3a:49", NAME="eth3"

Of course I can get an operational system by removing this file, rmmoding and modprobing the driver module and starting up the remaining init scripts, but this is a workaround, not a solution.
The machine is a normal 735/125 with the lasi_82596 driver.

The problem somehow auto-solved with an upgrade
