I do not understand how hotplug events enter the picture. I do not use
ifrename but I can rename interfaces manually using "ip link set name"
even when udev has already renamed the interface before. If ifrename can
not handle already-renamed interfaces, that's a bug in ifrename, but I
fail to see why renaming an interface multiple times should cause any
kind of problem.
