Great, thanks, I assumed it was something like that. On my systems at home there was a change on the one I did a complete fresh install with, but the new name was simple enough.
Tomorrow will be the big upgrade day for my 2 VPS

On the new install that I did, the network interfaces were not
renamed, i.e. they went eth0, eth1, etc. I suspect that udev either
knows not to rename Xen ones, or else it doesn't know anything about
Xen ones so doesn't. Either way I don't think you need to do
anything and the interfaces will stay as eth0.

I think that's probably the best way to keep it as the index of your
network interface is decided on bitfolk's side.
