predefine interfaces by MAC with udev?

Hello Chris and list,

Sorry, I have supposed that but I don't have tested the naming of the 
interfaces in live-initramfs, 
a comment,
I have seen that live-initramfs only activates the network interfaces when 
it's starting through the network, otherwise the interfaces are activated 
later, when the main OS starts,
so writing udev rules in the initrd file only could be useful in this case,
