A followup: there is a busybox-free set put together in
which includes ifupdown only if systemd is not in use.

However that packagegroup is not used in any images, and the only test for
it is in lib/oeqa/selftest/cases/imagefeatures.py
which does enable systemd, so that doesn't pull in ifupdown either.

This means ifupdown isn't runtime-tested now, and probably hasn't been
tested for a while.
