I don't know the exact reason, but best to my knowledge udev finds different
hardware attributes to the network interfaces at every boot. To fix the problem,
I manually edit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and fix interface
names according to the hardware attributes (e.g. MAC address). (Don't forget to
take a backup of the original file before mangling its content.) This works for
me.
