Fix for ifup-sit/ifdown-sit scripts to process rule6-* files

Description of problem:
When activating IP6 over IP4 tunnel, the route6-* files are processed but rule6-* are not.

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

How reproducible:
allways when starting/stopping IP6 tunnel via ifup/ifdown scripts

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-he6 as TYPE=sit and file etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/rule6-he6 with proper rules.
2. ifup he6
Actual results:
"ip -6 ru ls" does NOT show rules defined in rule6-he6 file

Expected results:
"ip -6 ru ls" should show rules rules defined in rule6-he6 file

Additional info:
Adding ip6 rules works for regular interfaces (eg. eth0). Patch fixing this issue is attached.

Thanks for the patch, I see no reason why not to include it.

use ip{up,down}-routes with sit

Bill suggested that we should use ifup-routes and ifdown-routes. Can you please try attached patch?
