Thanks, that could possibly help.
Need to check if the pci-id is the same for both cases.

Nevertheless I had hopend for a more general mechanism
for renaming to be available.
Like: rename anything matching "eth*" to "eth0".

Since I definitely know there is only one network device
present this would be exactly what I need.

If there is only one interface, it will be named eth0 by default (if
you disable new persistent interface names of course). If you get
something else it implies you have more than one interface. I wonder
what the actual problem here is.

This would be reasonable, but unfortunately it is not true in
general. My Development machine e.g. has only one network device but
the kernel names it eth1, not eth0:
