[arch-general] [PATCH] udev: do not automatically save persistent net/cd udev rules to /etc on boot

udev contains rules to generate persistent symlinks, if they do not work
as intendend this should be reported upstream.

Furthermore, upstream discourages using /dev/.udev as its format might
change at any time. As of upstream commit 5f59fa0900a5 the location has
changed to /dev/.run/udev, so we would have to make a change either way.
