I have a Dell poweredge 850 server with a quad port intel gigabit
ethernet pci-x card, but I'm only getting 2 of the 4 expected ports
listed.  The external usb drive used to boot this hasn't deleted the
'auto eth renumbering', so ports for eth0 start at eth11 - eth14.

More diagnostics here:


I haven't seen anything suspect in dmesg.
