This has been fixed.

eth0 wants to be renamed to eth1. eth1 gets renamed to eth1_temp; at
the same moment new interface is detected that gets eth1 from kernel.
Now you can neither rename eth0 to eth1 nor rename eth1_temp back.

This new device is going to be renamed to a different name anyway so
it's not a problem that cannot be solved. The old generator didn't solve
it reliable. The generator from SLE12, as far as I can say, does.

This makes hardware replacement much more difficult and demanding than
it could be, especially when the only access to system you have
remotely is via interface that is replaced.

Are we still talking about "most cases"?
