Default two patches for rc.d/network

1) 0001-add-some-useful-error-messages-to-wireless-code.patch
Makes the wireless code in rc.d/network output some useful errors and
a tad more robust, rather than failing and giving no useful error at
all.

Not tested yet, I don't have an insecure or WEP network to try it on,
and the family won't be impressed if I start messing with dd-wrt. I'll
try tomorrow morning when they're sleeping.

2) 0002-Added-connection-state-info-to-rc.d-network.patch
Makes rc.d/network create a file for an interface if it manages to
connect. Useful for scripts.
Also needs the directory /var/run/network/interfaces/ created in the
initscripts PKGBUILD.

(patches are not dependent)

Cheers,

James

Do all devs have full commit access to all of projects.archlinux.org?
So can I push these, any objections (i'll finish that testing
first...)?

They're pretty trivial if you want to look at them by eye, and the code
in the wireless one is slightly modified from netcfg and is well tested there.
