[Pkg-net-snmp-devel] Bug#368617: This seems to be an issue for Xen also

I am also seeing this every time I reboot a Xen domU on Etch:

IF-MIB::ifDescr.24 = STRING: v-deep
IF-MIB::ifDescr.28 = STRING: v-isst
IF-MIB::ifDescr.34 = STRING: v-light
IF-MIB::ifDescr.35 = STRING: v-light
IF-MIB::ifDescr.36 = STRING: v-light
IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus.24 = INTEGER: up(1)
IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus.28 = INTEGER: up(1)
IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus.34 = INTEGER: down(2)
IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus.35 = INTEGER: down(2)
IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus.36 = INTEGER: up(1)

The domU corresponding to v-light there was rebooted twice, and is
now using ifindex 36.  The other two instances of that interface are
not visible in "ifconfig -a" output nor in "ip link" output.

These go away if I restart snmpd.

This makes bandwidth use stats a bit tricky since most tools
continue using same interface index if it exists and has correct

snmpd 5.2.3-7
