Yes, I've noticed too, that the persistent network interface name
has been removed from udev and biosdevname usually does not work:

e.g. on a Dell OptiPlex 960, because there is smbios 2.5 and the
biosdevname rule explicitly checks for 2.6; further, one of the
NICs is not from Dell, but an additional TP-Link (r8169) PCIe Card.
When I've observed it correctly on a Dell OptiPlex 990 (SMBIOS 2.6),
it is not reliable; before [SLES-11-SP2] a r8169 card were renamed
to p1p1, on [SLES-11-SP3] p1p4.

Workaround is to add rules to the

# PCI device 0x8086:/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:19.0 (e1000e)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*",
ATTR{address}=="00:26:b9:8e:f8:66", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1",
KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="nic0"

# PCI device 0x10ec:/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.1/0000:03:00.0 (r8169)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*",
ATTR{address}=="90:f6:52:03:62:50", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1",
KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="nic1"

The rules can be IMO added using yast2.

To avoid rename problems, use something else than "ethX" for the names.
