Integrate biosdevname into the openSUSE installer
Description: 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 at install time.
The naming policy it suggests are as follows:
Embedded devices: em<port>
Add-in PCI cards: pci<slot>p<port>_<virtual function instance>
On a PER710 with 4 Lan-On-Motherboard interfaces and a dual port add-in network controller, the interface names would look like -
Onboard interfaces - em1 em2 em3 em4
Interface names for the dual port add-in controller on pci slot 2 pci2p0, pci2p1
If the second port has virtual functions enabled -pci2p1_0, pci2p1_2 ... etc
This feature request addresses the non-determinism in network interface naming and allows referring to the interfaces based on their physical location on the motherboard. This would help in easy administration and eliminates the need for embedded state such as HWADDR into the configuration files and names will be consistent across reboots.
