Hello to all,

Does anyone know if there is a maximum length of the vifname string? Is
this a xen limit or a kernel limit?

Say a string 10 characters long, other than the obvious hassle of
ifconfig truncating the name are there any other issues to think of?

Has anyone used a longer vifname and experience any quirks like possibly
snmp truncating the string too? 

Many thanks in advance if anyone knows.
