Why do you suggest this instead of using the correct method?!

The guy obviously got eth1 on host. Every time. He should have used it
instead of finding older incorrectly working versions of bootloaders.

The reason is simple: since Qi was fixed to properly provide
factory-configured MAC address for the usb networking interface, it's
detected on the host as it should, every time udev sees that device
it'll assign the same static interface to it (in the simplest case
it'll be eth1), that's the main improvement actually!

I wonder why you neovento guys don't read kernel mailing list, devel
mailing list where this was elaborated in details, why you never come
to IRC to discuss low-level issues etc.
