some futher thought one reason for the blocking of udev was to have the .link files that cloud-init wrote apply.
It turns out that will only rename devices once (based on a property in the devices /sys that says it has been renamed).

So, for cloud-init to have these apply we will probably have to unbind and bind the device to clear that. that will also generate a hotplug event to get the device changed.
