I am renaming my network interfaces
at system startup, because I want to avoid
changing system setup in lots of places
just because my eth0 become eth1
after I added another network card.
When I do this to hostap:
ip l set dev wlan0 name ifr
it works, but corresponding /proc
entry does not get renamed.
This leads to problems with e.g. prism2_srec
not being able to find and read required info.
