Bug#720531: ifupdown: Fixes for Debian/Hurd

Package: ifupdown
Version: 0.7.8
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

I've attached a patch series that fixes ifupdown to work properly on

The first patch makes ifupdown use inetutils-ifconfig instead of ifconfig and
fixes its use in two cases.

The second patch sanitizes the file names of pid files written by ifupdown and
provides the macro %iface_file_name% that provides the interface name sanitized
in a way so that it is safe to use as a file name fragment. This is motivated
by the fact that on the Hurd network interfaces are made available as files (e.
g. /dev/eth0) and so they can contain slashes.

The third patch uses the new %iface_file_name% for pid and dhcp lease file
names on the Hurd.
