Not sure. Might be a udev problem, a kernel bug, or a user error.
First of all, are you sure you didn't make a typo or something like
Marco: SGI MACE is a built-in device on a SGI O2. How would we check
whether this driver, drivers/net/meth.c, supports renaming properly or
whatever is needed to get udev going? Otherwise, if this is a udev
issue, what command should Giuseppe run to gather the information you
need to track this down?
