I've found that deleting 75-persistent-net-generator.rules takes care of
the network devices. 70-persistent-net.rules still exists, but it never
gets any devices added to it. Though you'll need to make sure you
delete any device lines that appeared in that file before
75-persistent-net-generator.rules was deleted.
