Package: ifrename
Version: 27-3
Severity: normal


I just wanted to setup ifrename together with hotplug on sid. It took me
quite some time to figure out why ifrename did not properly rename the
prism54 card when it was plugged in (the lan and the internal ipw2100
work perfectly). I finally found out that the MAC address that ifrename
gets is wrong, i.e. it's not the MAC printed on the adapter itself and
it's not the MAC address returned by ifconfig when the interface is up.

I have no idea where the MAC comes from, but it could be that it is the
MAC of the AP the card is normally associated with. Before I spam the
kernel-ml with this, I thought I'd check with BTS if the fault might be
on ifrename's side...
