No, you cannot change it this way. There is no code in udev to do
old-style renaming. You can disable use of net_id names, that's true,
but then you are responsible for providing alternate solution to
reliably rename interfaces if you want it. Disabling Predictable does
not automatically give you Persistent.

The code exists in SLE12 and SLE12-SP1 so that unless someone
deliberately took it away, it should also be present in Leap 42.1.
