net-tools is deprecated in favor of iproute2, and is only included in
the server seed in 18.04 because there wasn't time in the 18.04 cycle to
verify the effects of its removal.  What depends on the behavior of
'ifconfig -s' (which I've never once in 20 years of Linux seen before)
that makes this 'critical'?

Title:
  ifconfig -s (or -a -s) only outputs 8 characters of the interface
  name, when interfaces are 10+ characters.

Status in net-tools package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed
Status in net-tools source package in Bionic:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  When executing ifconfig, it outputs the whole 10 characters of the
  interface name. However, when using ifconfig -s (or ifconfig -a -s) it
  doesn't include all the name of the interface (or 10+ characters).
  Instead, it outputs only 8 characters of the interface.
