It's in order to ensure *predictable* NIC names across reboots.

My computers have been reliably using eth0 for decades.

The script is well.. wrong..making asumptions about interface names.


What about openSUSE documentation? The firewall script is full of references to eth0, eth1... and that's the only file I looked at yet.
