iwi and wlan-cloning

Hi all,

After installing 8.0-release I followed all the howtos on cloning my iwi0
device to wlan0 to setup
the wireless.

The manual configuration:

ifconfig wlan create wlandev iwi0 && wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant
-i wlan0 & dhclient wlan0

works well.

However, trying to get this done automatically seems not to work:

wlans_iwi0: not found
ifconfig_wlan0: not found

if I have rc.conf entries:

wlans_iwi0 = "wlan0"
ifconfig_wlan0 = "WPA DHCP"

Hope somebody has had more luck than I :)
