"Since 7.3.0, one can set the ACPI index against network interfaces. With
 some operating systems (eg Linux with systemd), the ACPI index is used
 to provide network interface device naming, that is stable across
 changes in PCI addresses assigned to the device. This value is required
 to be unique across all devices and be between 1 and (16*1024-1)."
