If the MAC address changes, I would expect the name to change from
`eno16777736` to something like `eno52423433`. I wouldn’t expect it to
change to `eth0`.
Anyhow, it could be interesting to watch for changes. Currently the
interface is named `eth0` with `00:0c:29:12:0e:9e` as MAC address:
$ ifconfig eth0
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.101.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast
inet6 fe80::7e13:1a20:5a2a:75b8 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20<link>

Perhaps someone can tell from the above output what’s happening.
