There is nothing wrong with it per se. I just think it is a bit awkward
that I need to have eth2 up with no IP just so the failover IP can be
added as a secondary IP. It seems cleaner to have heartbeat bring eth2
online when it starts and then when failover happens the secondary node
brings eth2 up there with the correct IP and all.
