I don't know the proper fix, but this is how i did it with Tao Linux to
make people possible to run FC-devel kernel over Tao/s390(x)

 ifconfig ${DEVICE} ${IPADDR} ${opts} pointopoint ${REMIP} netmask ${NETMASK}

ie. basically just do one _FAKE_ ifconfig so kernel module loader will
pick up the magic from /etc/modprope.conf _BEFORE_ trying to mess with
the /sys stuff.

There must be better way, but that was just a quick hack which doesn't
harm anyone.
