Do not create persistent name rules for eucalyptus interfaces

Bug Description

Binary package hint: udev

udev creates persistent rules in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules for eucalyptus network interfaces.

In a UEC cloud, you can try a few methods to create persistent EBS based system images, when these work you can boot instances that are persistent. If the eucalyptus MAC's are not ignored, your instance will start with the network on eth1 and be inaccessible.

Eucalyptus uses the MAC prefix: d0:0d

This problem is much like: where vmware/qemu/kvm interfaces needed to be ignored otherwise problems are created whilst cloning images.

Unfortunately this can't go upstream, as this isn't an officially registered MAC prefix. So we'll need to keep it as Ubuntu specific delta for now.

Thanks! I committed that to the udev packaging branch. I don't upload it right now because of the a3 freeze.
