I thought you were saying that
'/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules' remains a valid mechanism
for defining interface names in Buster (fixed). But the release-notes
(hmm, I think they've been modified since I last looked and now state
that that file is no longer "officially" supported by udev---but may
work in some cases). So I wouldn't be filing a bug report against that
stanza any longer, as current situation seems unverifiable. 

Sorry if I'm unclear.

Whether '/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules' was respected or not
as means of defining interface names.

Well, at the very least people should be informed who is likely to be
affected by the bug, and for those using amd64 how to check for the RDRAND
instruction, as well as what to do about it if they don't have it
(that's what I'd like to know, at any rate).

"These findings demonstrate that under appropriate conditions the isolated,
intact large mammalian brain possesses an underappreciated capacity for
restoration of microcirculation and molecular and cellular activity after a
prolonged post-mortem interval." From a recent article in *Nature*. Holy shit.
