JFTR: This feature was implemented in live-boot recently AFAICS:

We don't use the network handling from live-boot as-is though since we prefer
the ip=... argument handling as documented in

So this needs further investigation how to handle this on our site.

This makes sense and sounds like a useful feature to me, thanks for suggestion.

FTR, if someones wants to work on this:
is where it should go into (which is based on and once that feature is available there
it would also be part of further Debian derivatives too).

first, big thanks for grml. It's super useful.

It would be useful if one could select what eth device to configure
based on mac address, rather than device name.

A use case for this is a DHCP server that hands out a dynamic grml
configuration.  It'll then know what MAC address the client should use,
but have no information about what device this corresponds to.
