Include 71-biosdevname.rules to rename network interfaces based on chassis labels
On a Dell PowerEdge server with multiple add-in cards, the naming of the network interfaces is non-deterministic. This results in 'eth0' not mapping to "Embedded NIC 1" as labeled on the server chassis. This issue is seen on Dell PowerEdge 10G above. This feature addresses this issue by renaming network interfaces based on their location on the system motherboard.
The naming policy it suggests are as follows -
Embedded devices: em<port>
Add-in PCI cards: pci<slot>p<port>_<virtual function instance>
Please refer to "Consistent Network device naming-Name network interfaces to match chassis labels" (https://features.opensuse.org/310896 ).
This allows system administrators to refer to the network interfaces by names based on their location on the motherboard. The naming becomes deterministic and there is no state such as HWADDR embedded into the configuration files.
