Hi,

my ADSL connection works well with kernel 2.6.29, but since commit
0ba25ff4c669e5395110ba6ab4958a97a9f96922 (br2684: convert to net_device_ops)
entered the mainline using br2684ctl fails with the following bug:

I traced the failing strncmp call to be in the br2684_find_dev function. With the following patch
the messages change a little bit, but the connection still doesn't work. It seems
that net_dev->name is not initialized, but I have no idea where it should be set.


And the messages:
kernel: [  143.369252] ATM dev 0: ADSL line: attempting to activate
kernel: [  147.589978] br2684_find_dev: net_dev->name: <NULL>, s->spec.ifname: nas0
kernel: [  147.590030] br2684: tried to attach to non-existant device
kernel: [  151.369922] ATM dev 0: ADSL line: down

Reverting 0ba25ff4c669e5395110ba6ab4958a97a9f96922 "fixes" the issue also
in v2.6.30-rc4 (output with some debug messages):

br2684ctl[3566]: RFC 1483/2684 bridge daemon started 


I'll be glad to test any patches.

Mikko
