I see. It seems MAC addresses are allocated according to the NIC name
order, and that they are also named in the corresponding order within
the guest OS. So the only problem here is how gPXE chooses a NIC to boot
from... I'm not familiar with the behavior of gPXE, but oVirt seems to
behave alright.
