So what? The user deliberately asked for it. Also it seems easy to write
an udev rule to replace persistent-net-generator.rules using ifrename so
udev will be notified about the new name. That's at most a whislist bug
against ifrename.

It's nice that udev can do it all alone but allowing users to continue
to use the tool they are already familiar with is even nicer.
