Where did you get the (stupid) idea of /dev/MyDriver? There is no such thing in almost, if not all all UNIX like systems. Network interfaces are not character or block devices, they live in a namespace of there own.
I fully agree the original comment, that suggesting to use anything about the interface name is asking for portability problem. In fact, all versions of SMIT (the AIX adminstration tool) from 3.2.5 to 5L use the interface name and nobody I know of complained about it.
If you want to know which interface belongs to which physical device, never forget that a network interface doesn't have to be backed by a device either.
