just some basic information on systemd development, this may affect various scripts and systems, so it's good to know it's coming:

systemd 197 released
lwn.net/Articles/531850/
Basic list of changes and features

systemd network interface names
www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/PredictableNetworkInterfaceNames

systemd network interface naming rules
cgit.freedesktop.org/systemd/systemd/tree/src/udev/udev-builtin-net_id.c#n20

:: Code ::
* Predictable network interface device names based on:
 *  - firmware/bios-provided index numbers for on-board devices
 *  - firmware-provided pci-express hotplug slot index number
 *  - physical/geographical location of the hardware
 *  - the interface's MAC address
 *
 * Two character prefixes based on the type of interface:
 *   en -- ethernet
 *   wl -- wlan
 *   ww -- wwan
 *
 * Type of names:
 *   o<index>                              -- on-board device index number
 *   s<slot>[f<function>][d<dev_id>]       -- hotplug slot index number
 *   x<MAC>                                -- MAC address
 *   p<bus>s<slot>[f<function>][d<dev_id>] -- PCI geographical location
 *   p<bus>s<slot>[f<function>][u<port>][..][c<config>][i<interface>]
 *                                         -- USB port number chain
 *
 * All multi-function PCI devices will carry the [f<function>] number in the
 * device name, including the function 0 device.
 *
 * For USB devices the full chain of port numbers of hubs is composed. If the
 * name gets longer than the maximum number of 15 characters, the name is not
 * exported.
 * The usual USB configuration == 1 and interface == 0 values are suppressed.
 *
 * PCI ethernet card with firmware index "1":
 *   ID_NET_NAME_ONBOARD=eno1
 *   ID_NET_NAME_ONBOARD_LABEL=Ethernet Port 1
 *
 * PCI ethernet card in hotplug slot with firmware index number:
 *   /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.3/0000:05:00.0/net/ens1
 *   ID_NET_NAME_MAC=enx000000000466
 *   ID_NET_NAME_PATH=enp5s0
 *   ID_NET_NAME_SLOT=ens1
 *
 * PCI ethernet multi-function card with 2 ports:
 *   /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.0/0000:02:00.0/net/enp2s0f0
 *   ID_NET_NAME_MAC=enx78e7d1ea46da
 *   ID_NET_NAME_PATH=enp2s0f0
 *   /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.0/0000:02:00.1/net/enp2s0f1
 *   ID_NET_NAME_MAC=enx78e7d1ea46dc
 *   ID_NET_NAME_PATH=enp2s0f1
 *
 * PCI wlan card:
 *   /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.1/0000:03:00.0/net/wlp3s0
 *   ID_NET_NAME_MAC=wlx0024d7e31130
 *   ID_NET_NAME_PATH=wlp3s0
 *
 * USB built-in 3G modem:
 *   /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.4/2-1.4:1.6/net/wwp0s29u1u4i6
 *   ID_NET_NAME_MAC=wwx028037ec0200
 *   ID_NET_NAME_PATH=wwp0s29u1u4i6
 *
 * USB Android phone:
 *   /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.2/2-1.2:1.0/net/enp0s29u1u2
 *   ID_NET_NAME_MAC=enxd626b3450fb5
 *   ID_NET_NAME_PATH=enp0s29u1u2
