I have one question: AFAIK an interface that is brought up via
dhcpcd is brought down by doing 'dhcpcd -k $interface'.
I tried it too, it works :-).
So I put that command into ifdown-$interface.
The problem, however, is that the dhcpcd daemon gets killed by
'sendsignals stop' /before/ 'network stop' is called, so the
network script fails.

How do you cope with that?
