Creating a tap interface with a non-tap name, such as


and `ifup foo2` will produce this error:

Interface foo2 is not available

Reason for that is that /etc/sysconfig/network/scripts/functions function
is_iface_available checks for the interface name "tap*" instead of the
TUNNEL=tap declaration.
