+	All USB ethernet devices now attach as interfaces under the name ueN
+	(eg. ue0). This is to provide a predictable name as vendors often
+	change usb chipsets in a product without notice.
 	The ichsmb(4) driver has been changed to require SMBus slave
 	addresses be left-justified (xxxxxxx0b) rather than right-justified.
