Hello,

configuring network settings in an AutoYaST profile does not work anymore for SLES-12.
It worked for SLES11-SP3 for years and for SLES-12 with patches up to Aug. 10 2015.
It stopped working when appying updates at Sep. 16 2015. I did no tests with intermediate
patch levels. With the today patches applied, it does still not work!

To reproduce the behaviour, make an installation with the following profile and see,
/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth1 and -eth2 are missing, and the interfaces are not
configured (ip a). ethtool shows "link detected" for all interfaces (kvm on SLES-12).
