8 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695

11 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
12 routes_eth0=(
13 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
14 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
15 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
16 )
17
18 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
19 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
20
21 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
22 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
23
24 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
25 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
26 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
27 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
28 using the new syntax:
29
30 ifconfig_eth0=(
31 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
32 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
33 "123.456.789.1"
34 )
35
36 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
37 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
38
39 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
40
41 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
42 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
43
44 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
45 setup_vars
46
47 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
48 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
49 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
50
51 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
52
53 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
54 instead of eval echo
55
56 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
57 statically set addresses
58
59 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
60
61 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
62 address gleaned
63
64 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
65
66 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
67 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
68 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
69 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
70
71 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
72 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
73 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
74 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
75
76 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
77 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
78 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
79 be properly shut down.
80
81 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
