This caught me out on a recent new installation, which gave me these new
names which are too complicated to be usable. I wasted hours working out
what had happened, how to fix it and how to write a udev rules file from
scratch. And having just read this thread, I've discovered that the rules
I've written are themselves apparently unreliable, for example:
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ATTR{address}=="1c:1b:0d:9a:34:98", NAME="eth0"
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ATTR{address}=="1c:1b:0d:9a:34:9a", NAME="eth1"
