biosdevname: apply BIOS-given names to network devices

 biosdevname in its simplest form takes a kernel device name
 as an argument, and returns the BIOS-given name it "should" be.
 This is necessary on systems where the BIOS name for a given device
 (e.g. the label on the chassis is "Gb1") doesn't map directly and
 obviously to the kernel name (e.g. eth0).
 This also works as a straight udev rule, which is provided.
