Problem and workaround described here

Discussion on Arch BBS pinned blame on a systemd change, but they pin it on netctl.

I have this netctl profile; the usb0 interface only appears if a usb-gadget is configured. This worked until systemd 230.

I disagree with the systemd change and have asked for more information at the systemd bug.

Did you file a new bug on systemd? If so can you link here?
Comment by Jouke Witteveen (jouke) - Saturday, 27 August 2016, 21:17 GMT
No, I have not file a bug concerning ordering dependencies.
However, note that I did include a response to this bug:

For the usb gadget, I fail to see why you would want to enable a profile when the presence of the device is not certain at boot time. Maybe you are better off with a udev rule that runs `netctl start <profile>` whenever the device is plugged in.
Comment by Liam (networkimprov) - Saturday, 27 August 2016, 21:24 GMT
Yes, I fixed by adding this to my unit that creates the gadget:

Wants=netctl@ethernet\x2dusb.service # netctl profile "ethernet-usb"
