Do you have ifrename installed? If yes, just get rid of it and run
/lib/udev/write_net_rules instead; this will generate udev-based persistent
naming rules for your network devices; you can modify them by editing the file
/etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules. What to edit should be pretty clear;
if not, have look at this[0] howto.
