Okay, a better solution is perhaps to look
at "75-persistent-net-generator.rules" -

:-) indeed

I haven't done so, but it
seems to be the place that governs when/how persistent network device
names are allocated.
Maybe it would suffice to remove 'eth*' from the device name whitelist?

Or just disable the writing of the 70-persistent-net.rules entry, which is
done in the line

DRIVERS=="?*", IMPORT{program}="write_net_rules"

So I'd try just commenting that one out...
