That is useful, there is one problem with this though, it is a regular
initscript, which means filesystems on fcoe devices cannot be mounted
from rc.sysinit. We can work around this by marking them as _netdev
in their fstab options (otherwise rc.sysinit will drop the system
to a rescue shell when it cannot find them).

There are however issues with marking them as _netdev:
1) This is technically not correct IMHO, FCoE is just a normal external
    "disk", which happens to be plugged in in ethernet port instead of
    a usb stick, but it has nothing to do with the network
    (fibrechannel != network), see below as to why this matters

Well, it requires the link at least to be up, which we don't do until

And which we could easily do for the interface in question from rc.sysinit.

Will fcoe over vlans add any problems to any of these solutions? Just want to make sure.
