A new `network-scripts` option: "IFDOWN_ON_SHUTDOWN"
This update adds the "IFDOWN_ON_SHUTDOWN" option for `network-scripts`. Setting this option to `yes`, `true`, or leaving it empty has no effect. If you set this option to `no`, or `false`, it causes the `ifdown` calls to not be issued when stopping or restarting the `network` service.
This can be useful in situations where NFS (or other network file system) mounts are in a stale state, because the network was shut down before the mount was cleanly unmounted.
I think we should backport https://github.com/fedora-sysv/initscripts/commit/2eaa9d1e7b682ce895d56966d9178dcfa0c822b1
In systemd, we have quite a lot of bugs with races where the network was shut down before a network disk was unmounted. This option brings a nice and simple workaround for those issues.
By default, this should be set to IFDOWN_ON_SHUTDOWN=true.

Just to clarify, the current logic there assumes to use 'ifdown' on shutdown also when the IFDOWN_ON_SHUTDOWN option is empty.
