udev: renamed network interface eth1 to p1p1

Hi All,

I recently bought a few TP-LINK Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet cards for my CentOS 6 workstations. I followed this guide on CentOS Wiki to download and install the r8168-8.044.02 drivers, which seem to install fine, but after I reboot,
1. I find no entries in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules corresponding to my cards
2. dmesg seems to have loaded the drivers, but says
udev: renamed network interface eth1 to p1p1
udev: renamed network interface eth2 to p4p1

Ok, this is weird. I was able to get the interfaces up using
ifup p1p1
ifup p4p1

But how do I rename these back to eth1, eth4?? I need my eths
