Bug Description

Users who use the dropbear remote unlock init hook to remotely unlock a cryptroot setup should have their udev network interface rules persisted in the initramfs. That is, when a system has the dropbear hook enabled and it has a cryptroot setup then "NEED_PERSISTENT_NET" should be set to "yes" to ensure that network interfaces are not renamed unexpectedly.

If this does not make sense to do by default then I would like to suggest that /usr/share/doc/cryptsetup/README.remote.gz is changed to inform users of NEED_PERSISTENT_NET.
