 Replying to [comment:25 Bryan Kadzban]:
 > This seems to be what we did in the 6.2 book
 (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/6.2/chapter07/network.html for
 instance)?  Note all the exceptions below the example rules; that list is
 longer now.  Should we keep that list in the book (including additions to
 it), or expect the user to find it on their own?  Or not support that
 hardware (which I think is equivalent to "expect the user to find it on
 their own")?  Or something else?

 The long list of exceptions is a red herring. Moreover, it explains why
 modern versions of udev write rules this way, so it counts as educational
 content. What really matters is that the rule matches the correct device
 uniquely, and we should state this goal explicitly and provide a way to
 check this (e.g., say that the *_rename interface will appear after the
 reboot in the case of an error).
