Naming is a hard problem, and best left to userspace.
By choosing ethN as a naming policy, you potentially run into naming
conflicts with other non netvsc devices like those passed through or
SR-IOV devices.

Better to have udev use dev_num and use something like envN or something.
Udev also handles SRIOV devices in later versions.

Fighting against systemd, netplan, etc is not going to be make friends.
