Description (partial)

Symptom:
The xStatus NetworkInterface Devices order is not tied to the linux eth* device order which could potentially cause confusion.

Conditions:
- In this case the customer was trying to configure port-security using the short-hand command "xstatus // Mac", but they ran into an issue where it appeared as though the interface's MAC address was swapping almost every reboot. 
* After getting on a WebEx, we were able to figure what was happening was that it was eth0 and eth1 were constantly swapping between xstatus NetworkInterface Devices 1 and 2, but it should be noted LAN1/2 and the MAC address always stayed with the correct eth* interface.
* This was complicated by the fact that that the short-hand command only shows the parent Devices number and the MAC address with no other information, but running the full xStatus NetworkInterface Devices command would show that the underlying Ethernet interfaces were not actually swapping.
