Description of problem:
I upgraded a Redhat 7.x Linux to 8.0 Personal on a Dell 3800 notebook.  All went
well except that my Wavelan 802.11b card was not initialized on startup.  I
traced this to net.agent calling ifup eth0.  ifup then invoked ifup-wireless,
however wireless.opts was never sourced, so ifup-wireless did nothing, and
therefore no iwconfig eth0 essid was done.  Doing the iwconfig by hand fixed the
problem.  If the wireless configuration mechanism has changed, then an upgrade
install should migrate the settings.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade a 7.x system with working wireless.opts to 8.0.
2. Boot or unplug/plug wireless card.
3. See that no iwconfig parameters are set.

Actual Results:  I did
  sh -xv /sbin/ifup eth0 > & /tmp/ifup.out
to see what was going on.  I scanned the result to see that wireless.opts was
never sourced.

Expected Results:  wireless.opts should have been sourced.
