Because, when GATEWAY and GATEWAYDEV are set in /etc/sysconfig/network
then commented lines adds gw to any interface. In original code problem
wasn't exists because /etc/sysconfig/network was included after those
lines. But vlan code relies on presence keyword VLAN in 'network' file,
and /etc/sysconfig/network must be included from beginning...

As far I understood this code adds per-interface gateways, I was sugested
by 'this is broken (...)' sentence and because following lines[1] provides
support for default gw in RHEL-way and in RHEL3 I don't found nothing like
this I decided to comment-out those lines.

If this code is essential I can use ipcalc to test availability of gateway
IP via actual network or something in this style...

    if [ "${GATEWAYDEV}" = "" -o "${GATEWAYDEV}" = "${DEVICE}" ]; then
        # set up default gateway
