Took this opportunity to clean the hell out of the /etc/rc.d/ifplugd script. Any testing you can do would be appreciated.

I was using the net-auto-wired netcfg script and noticed in /var/log/messages the illegal syntax token messages. I saw that the syntax was indeed bash syntax in /etc/rc.d/functions which was "sourced". I installed and tested the the above attached ifplugd.action, as well as ifplugd, and both work wonderfully. Now when I plug in my ethernet, things work cleanly, and the "unmount_all" function that is now in the latest core/initscripts 2012.01.2-1 won't have a syntax error reported.

Sure, I'll clean this up.
