reassign 783596 ifupdown
retitle 783596 ifupdown elides info from all but last homonymous iface def'n

OK, thanks for the reference. I didn't know that ifupdown had been
enhanced in that way.

    ifupdown (0.7~alpha4) experimental; urgency=low
        * Allow multiple interface definitions to ease work with
          multiple IP per interface.

The unexpected behavior you reported arises from a bug or limitation
in ifupdown: when there are multiple logical interface definitions
with the same name it only sends information from the last definition
to hook scripts. If this gets fixed or changed then resolvconf will
work the way you expected.
