The ports on devices such as Ubiquiti ER-X are named eth0 through
eth4, all of them DSA slaves. The gmac (DSA master) is hard-coded to
eth0 without this change.

Yeah, that is a valid argument. We can drop this changeset if the
agreement is that it doesn't belong in the specific driver or the
kernel-space at all.
