comment How to set default file permissions for all folders/files in a directory?
g+s will ensure that new content in the directory will inherit the group ownership. setfacl only changes the chmod, in your case sets the permission to o=rx

comment Can I create a virtual ethernet interface named eth0?
Right, then I'll get back to figuring out how netctl works - so educational when stuff doesn't work!

comment Can I create a virtual ethernet interface named eth0?
Ah, thanks. I completely forgot that there are requirements for those things to work. I'll just grab the next one it randomly generates and use that. Is there a way to keep the device persistent across reboots rather than recreating it and setting its address back on boot with a script?

comment Can I create a virtual ethernet interface named eth0?
I have a problem. When trying to change the MAC with ip link set dev eth0 address 01:23:45:67:89:ab (While the adapter is down of course) it says RTNETLINK answers: Cannot assign requested address. I also tried installing macchanger, but it returns a similar error. Everything tried as root.

I already tried that, it just messed it all up and my adapters vanished.

@rainbowgoblin No, it checks with the server every time it's started up, so it would just start giving me the "Couldn't get host ID" error again later. Either way derobert's solution was perfect, and doesn't even feel like that much of a workaround.
