I tested this on a ThinkPad (amd64) and it works. I cannot reproduce the previously reported failure though, i. e. the one-line udev rule works for me as well. But at least there is no regression here, so IMHO it's safe to release that to get the other fixes out.
If it still does not work for you, please reopen and yell here.

It appears the regression is here: * Set MAC based name for USB network interfaces only for universally administered (i. e. stable) MACs, not for locally administered (i. e. randomly generated) ones. Drop /lib/systemd/network/90-mac-for-usb.link (as link files don't currently support globs for MACAddress=) and replace with an udev rule in /lib/udev/rules.d/73-special-net-names.rules. (Closes: #812575, LP: #1574483) As Raspberry Pi's use eth0 via USB, this breaks running systems.

SRU TEST CASE ============= * Boot with "net.ifnames=0" on the kernel command line, and connect an USB ethernet device. It will still be called enxDEADBEEF with current xenial. With the -proposed version it will instead keep the kernel name, like "usb0" as intended. * Do "sudo ln -s /dev/null /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-setup-link.rules" (the other documented way to disable ifnames) and do the above connect/name check test again.
