This happened in February so the syslogs have all been rotated into
oblivion, but I think it went a lot like

 - hey, what's the eth1 interface in the dhclient error messsages?
   # I may have bumped the log verbosity, don't remember
 - I only have one wired interface and that's eth0
 - let's check for eth1 below /etc/ (grep -rl eth1 /etc)
 - what package did that file/directory come from (dpkg -S)
 - in case that didn't turn up anything
   - let's look in /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.{pre,post}inst
 - what's that package do?
 - do I need that for anything?
   - if no, then apt purge to the rescue
     # check what else gets pulled with it before saying yes

Hope that helps,
