creating an entry 'dev' means telling them tools to

that was an example, you can use _any_ interface
instead, vlan devices will also include setup

no, no at all

it usually refers to the first network interface

no, doesn't mean anything else than to 'assign' an

yes? what did it mean in your opinion?

of course, nodev means 'do not create that ip' which,
again for sanity reasons, also means: 'do not remove
the ip' which wasn't created in the first place

I do not see what you would like to fix, please
elaborate on the semantics you have in mind:
we need the following cases to be handled:
a) the ip already exists, is part of the host setup
and should not be touched by the tools
[ currently nodev ]
b) the ip is considered part of the guest, it should
be created on guest startup, and removed on guest
shutdown from the tools
[ currently dev ]
c) the guest uses an ip on a vlan device, which is
already declared on the host, but the ip itself
is considered part of the guest as in b
[ currently dev, novlandev ]
d) both, the vlan _and_ the ip are considered part
of the guest and should be created on guest
startup and removed on shutdown
[ currently dev with vlan entry ]

I do not know about your expectations, but mine are
met here ...

if they use the tools with for example:
they will get case a) which is what you are asking
PS: 192.168.0.2/24 is an example and not hardcoded
anywhere, just to clarify :)
