Error screen when dracut stops
Description of problem:
When installing F20 and configuring the NIC from the boot command line, dracut does not allow dual stack configuration
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot kernel with two 'ip=' statements, one for IPv4 and one for IPv6.
2. Boot and install Fedora
3. No dual stack configuration is configured.
When omitting the devicename part in the 'ip=' option, dracut only uses the first option. When including the devicename part in the 'ip=' option dracut stops with a fatal error, stating that the 'ip=' can only occure once
Dracut should identify that both 'ip=' options are for a different address class and use both for the NIC configuration.
Still present in 22 Alpha TC6
