At least in theory you should be able to give some
a fixed name to your wireless interface in /etc/mactab. Check
'man nameif' for a description. I did not test that but various
scripts in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts make an impression that
they try to take /etc/mactab into consideration.
Surely you can get that if you will force a run of 'nameif' early
enough in a boot sequence but this means some extra startup scripts
and likely is not needed at all.
- doesn't handle collisions among names (just dies with -EEXIST)
- fails really badly on devices that create both eth0 and wifi0
(can change the wrong device)
