If you want to avoid racing with the kernel then you should choose
stable names from another namespace than the one that the kernel uses.
Suggestion: Use 'eth_0' and 'eth_1' instead of 'eth0' and 'eth1'.
Md: Or is there something in udevd now that will prevent such races?
What I mean by 'races' are sequences like these:
* Kernel creates eth0
* Userspace notices eth0, looks at its properties, and...
* Kernel creates eth1
* ...tries to rename it to 'eth1', but that name is taken
