Naming of interfaces

During the boot sequence of a vRouter, the VM assigns PCI slots in the order that interfaces are discovered.

To avoid the renaming of interfaces, either ensure that no temporary hot-plugged interfaces exist before the persistent interfaces or use the <address .../> clause in the XML file that is associated with the interface to specify the PCI slot into which to plug the interface.
