Change uses of \s within sed regexps -- some versions of sed do not support this

Allow the vif-nat and vif-route scripts to have netdev specified, rather than
hard-coding eth0.

1 Command Incompatibilities
2 =========================
4 Known incompatibilities with various commands on various distributions, and
5 the workarounds we use.
8 brctl
9 -----
11 brctl show <bridge> fails on SLES9 SP2. Workaround is to use brctl show
12 without arguments, and grep, though this would be difficult were you to need
13 to check for a specific bridge-interface pair, since brctl does not show the
14 bridge name on every line.
17 ifup / ifdown
18 -------------
20 SuSE requires an extra parameter to ifup, which is created by calling getcfg
21 appropriately. See xen-network-common.sh for details.
23 Gentoo doesn't have ifup/ifdown; appropriate alternatives are defined in
24 xen-network-common.sh.
27 sed
28 ---
30 \s is not supported in regexps on Debian etch (sed 4.1.2), Ubuntu 4.10. We
31 hand-craft character classes instead.
