When fixing bug 1579130 , we made cloud-init rename devices itself,
rather than relying on the systemd.link files to do that.

cloud-init was still writing .link files like:
 /etc/systemd/network/50-cloud-init-ens2.link

That leads to just a confusing situation as cloud-init will trump
any renaming systemd does in all cases.

We'd like to get to a place where cloud-init allows the user to later customize
the name of the devices in a supported manner, but for the moment, these files
only create confusion.
