Newer kernels export meta-information about the origin of an ifname. Respect this
from the ifname rename logic. We do not rename any interfaces that was originally
named by userspace, nor once which have already been renamed from userspace.

Moreover, we optionally do not (the default) rename interfaces which the kernel
claims to have named in a predictable way.
