Description of problem:
I have ethernet interface with aliases such as eth0 and eth0:0.
Additionally I wrote static routes in new format to route-eth0 and route-eth0:0
But in default ifup-routes the device name is passed as is. This behaviour is
not accepted by /sbin/ip.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Last official RHEL3as update, but I guess the all distributions shipped by
Fedora also affected.

Fix described issue
Added to CVS in the development tree; this fix will be in RHEL 5.
Red Hat does not currently plan to provide a resolution for this in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux update for currently deployed systems.
With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response
to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when
evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed
products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware
platform support and to resolve critical defects.
