Description of problem:
Configuration adds "--remotename" option in /etc/ppp/peers/ppp0 this can not be
handled by wvdial.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create ppp configuration
2.Look in the peers file

Actual Results:  Couldn't dial the configured ppp connection

Expected Results:  Either wvdial should handle --remotename or it should be
removed from the config file.

Additional info:

Content of /etc/ppp/peers/ppp0:

connect "/usr/bin/wvdial --remotename ppp0 --chat 'Telia'"

If i remove:
--remotename ppp0

I can dial the ppp connection by using:
ifup ppp0
