Erm, no, FCoE does not use IP, it uses Fibre Channel protocols
encapsulated in ethernet packets, this is all handled
by the kernel, all rc.sysinit needs to do is tell the kernel:
"go talk FCoE on that NIC"

OK. Still, device names aren't persistent. Hardware addresses
are a better key, if possible.

Agreed, but in the end we need to echo a eth# name to
a sysfs file, so since that we've udev rules taking care of
stable eth# names it might be the easiest to just store
the eth# names (easiest for the initscripts that is).

But first I'll checkout what fcoe-utils has to offer
wrt config files and initscripts.
