Oh ok. Not useful at all if you ask me. Why? Because sometimes, you
can't change the MAC address. For example, if you use the OpenStack bare
metal driver, then you continue to use virtual machine images, though
they will be used on a real hardware where you can't change the MAC
address. So this is a very wrong assumption that udev is doing here, and
we still need a way to fix it (by fixing, I mean disabling the
presistent-net rule in a non-too-hackish way).
