Workaround: In /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf, I simply set:


If my analysis is correct, DEVICE is ignored and I can simply use IP. If
so, I think there are still at least two bugs here: Autodetection
doesn't work with multiple interfaces (and it's clear from the code that
it's _trying_ to support that use case), and the sample file has this
misleading comment:

# DEVICE: ...
# Specify a specific network interface, like eth0
# Overridden by optional ip= bootarg

This makes it sound like DEVICE is used if ip= isn't set, but that's not
true -- if ip= isn't set, and IP isn't set, DEVICE is overridden anyway.
