SubjectRe: IP_ALIAS in 2.4.x gone?

I found the problem...

IP_ALIAS is no longer needed in the config. I screwed up the init script
configs for it so it did not work as expected.

The documentation does not reflect that the alias behaviour is on by
default.

I will submit a patch for the docs that reflects this so others will not
get confused by that.
