dhcpcd@.service contains alias for old naming scheme.

Additional info:
* dhcpcd 5.6.4-1
* systemd 197-4
* /usy/lib/systemd/system/dhcpcd@.service

Steps to reproduce:
Simply enable the dhcpcd@.service.

The dhcpcd@.service file (of the dhcpcd package obviously) contains this:


While this is typically what we would have wanted in the past, this is no longer the case with the new naming scheme for network devices under systemd 197-4.

Judging by the presence of the dhcpcd_.service file that is included with dhcpcd in ABS (which is then copied as dhcpcd@.service by the PKGBUILD), I assume that this is an Arch Linux contribution, and not something that is coming from upstream.

Personally, I just copied the file to the appropriate /etc/systemd/system/ and replaced the Alias= line with "" and all seems well.

I know that there was a bug report for the same topic that had previously been closed, but it now seems as though this issue is more relevant.
This task depends upon

Sorry, I forgot to change the categories on the right to the appropriate values. My bad.
