Network device could show as '__tmpxxxxxxx' instead of ethX in a ifconfig report.
BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Such an entry appears in the ifconfig report when it finds a device for which there is no correct definition file.
