I am not the author of the previous patch which
addressed the same problem.
I have renamed my interfaces with iproute2 and ethtool
thinks all interfaces should be named eth or usb.
I have removed that check and added a check of
ifr.ifr_hwaddr.sa_family instead so it doesn't depend
on the name of the interface to see if it is a ethernet
I have no usb interface so I can't verify if this patch
detects usb ethernet interfaces but I would think they
are reported as regular ethernet interfaces.
Please drop me an email if you decide to use this patch.
