I just wrote two small patches for very basic vlan support. So far
changes works for me, but they aren't well tested. I took some code 
from RHEL4 but, in principle, I tried to mimic actual style, rid
off all automation (module loading, interface renaming) and use
the same tools as main script (ifconfig over ip).

I will be glad for corrections and suggestions about style, tools
and other things (for example: "'-q' should be used rather '>/dev/null'
in grep") preferred by Owl team in system scripts.
