 If you don't want to run Lennart-from-scratch, this is what I use
to get back to a sane name -

# fix the ecpXsY ethernet naming
echo "# dummy, so that network is once again on eth0" >/etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-name-slot.rules

 Strictly, just creating an empty file with that name will solve the
problem - but empty files are fragile and their meaning is likely to
be forgotten!  This fixes the major abomination since udev was merged
into systemd - that undesirable change is now also in eudev and
Bruce's udev-from-systemd.

 I leave it to the people drinking Lennart's kool-aid to explain why
names such as enp3s0 are saner than eth0!
