Description of problem:
Running ifup gre0 causes the network initscript to go into 'fail' state
because the ifup-ovs calls ifup-eth but the gre0 interface is not visible
to the OS.
# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-gre0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure the OVS bridge
2. Configure the gre0 interface as described above
3. Reboot the system
4. Check network service status
The service goes into 'fail' state
The service works on both ifup and ifdown.
