I can add support for this method, but don't open a bug asking to specify the
ethernet card by PCI device ID or something.

Comment 2 Bill Peck 2006-06-19 16:19:46 UTC
Just to clarify this is a regression.  This used to work.  So no I won't open a
bug asking for pci device or id..  I don't understand why you would even state
that? I'm just asking for functionality that was present to be added back.  

Comment 3 David Cantrell 2006-06-19 16:24:15 UTC
Right.  Don't take what I said to mean anything.  I think I got up on the wrong
side of the bed this morning.

Fixed in rawhide now.
