Interface naming bug with trivial fix (#17963)

ModEdit; related ticket: #17963: Trunk interface names truncated to 7 characters on macOS hosts

Two months ago, I filed bug 17963 ( about truncated interface names on macOS hosts, along with a detailed diagnosis. The fix is trivial, but didn't make it into VirtualBox 5.2.20. What should I do to get the fix committed?

You could ping the developers come Monday CET on IRC, or I could...
