Bug Description

In the script in this package, eth* NIC names are hardcoded. This affects systems with biosdevname enabled, as they use em* and p*p* instead.

See line 11 of this script in bridge-utils (0.9.2-1):

        set regex eth.\* noregex "$@"

This appears to be the only line of code in this package where this is hardcoded.

    interface names out of the box (LP: #948546).
