[arch-general] fresh install: netctl and interface renaming

Netctl fails to start static profile due to different interface name. It 
looks like netctl is trying to start (twice?) before kernel finishes 
network interface renaming.

Yes I saw.

I am OK with  Predictable Network Interface Names names set by systemd. 
The problem is that interface name is changed after netctl tries to 
setup network profile.
I am not very familiar with systemd dependencies  - any idea how to 
debug it? It looks like there is a missing dependency and netctl tries 
to start its profiles to early.
