Linuxconf 1.12r5-6rh doesn't think ip aliasing support is in
my 2.2.5 kernel when it is. Look:

This is spat out on boot as well. Please fix.
That's a known upgrade issue. We will be releasing a new linuxconf
as a 5.2 2.2.x upgrade at some time in the future. In the meantime,
you can try rebuilding the rawhide linuxconf source rpm; it may well
work for you -- we just haven't tested it enough to release as a 5.2
2.2.x kernel upgrade yet, and it interacts with a few other components
that we need to test all together back in the 5.2 environment.
this is fixed in the latest linuxconf in Raw Hide; recompiling it
for 5.2 should work OK.
