multiple dhcp aliases

I need to get multiple DHCP aliases working.
I attached patch to the /lib/network/ file to get this working.

Can someone check his and maybe make it available upstream?

ifup and ifdown need some modifications as well I think.
But I do not have much expertise in this. I'll try to find out.
Some processe ahve to be cleaned up to be able to restart or reload the network conf.

This nice patch add support for DHCP client on alias interfaces, eg. WAN:1, otherwise unsupported. Useful to access to modem web interface.

TODO: I'm checking ifdown script as here I need to clean up locks and processes for these aliases.
Also I like to add clientid check if dhcp on aliases. If clientid is not set, dhcp runs only on one interface and will not get ip for other aliases if in the same LAN. So more to come soon...

Here is a new patch that also changes ifdown to have aliases dhcp processes removed.

Maybe if it get tested well it can be integrated in the trunk?
