but comments have no effect, these have a real effect, this is set on
the interface and tracked by the kernel

Also, ifupdown2's interfaces names it alias as it's named alias also
in the kernel, so naming this "comment" here makes it harder to make
the actual connection to what this refers – I'd like to avoid such
things as it actually makes things less consistent..
