On F19 how do I create persistent rules for ethernet interfaces?

But they are switched
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
         inet 10.10.xxx.xxx  netmask  broadcast
         inet6 fe80::2e0:4cff:fe03:7ba  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
         ether 00:e0:4c:03:07:ba  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)

eth1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
         inet 24.xxx.xxx.xxx  netmask  broadcast 
         inet6 fe80::21d:72ff:fe05:4a68  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
         ether 00:1d:72:05:4a:68  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
