Re: [Xen-devel] [1/3] [XEN] gnttab: Add new op unmap_and_replace
This will make it much easier for people who want to use bonding, or VLANs
and any other funky networking config in Dom0, and the same configs will
work for both Xen & KVM. Hence we wanted to have a generic 'eth0' and 'peth0'
rather than 'xenbr0' and 'eth0'. Of course there's plenty of other naming
schemes too, but figured since Xen already had the idea of a 'p' prefix for
identifying a physical device that seemed reasonable to keep.
I'd rather name the things what they are. Name the ethernet interface
eth0, name the bridge xenbr0 or virtbr0 or just br0. Drop peth0. The
only reason for the renaming was to trick the distro setup scripts by
doing "ifdown eth0; bridge-setup (with eth0 -> peth0 and veth0 -> eth0);
