Detailed Description

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638131

This requires ability to enable more than one network devices in loader while preserving current behaviour of kickstart network command, which means adding of new network --activate option. Also now when more devices come into play, option that allows to prevent grabbing of default route by additional (e.g. iSCSI dedicated) device is needed (--nodefroute).

Benefit to Fedora

Wider range of iSCSI installations.

Scope

anaconda: kickstart network configuration only pykickstart

Release Notes

Added installation case should be mentioned. Not sure about heralding of new possibility to activate more devices using kickstart in general.
