Hey Bruce,

Due to the 209/210 releases of systemd being released, I just re-read the
wiki and noticed, it's documented on
http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/PredictableNetworkInterfaceNames/-
I typo'd - it's net.ifnames=0 - and it's been there since udev 199.
It's
#4 under the heading "I don't like this, how do I disable this?"
