    [NET]: Proper comment for loopback initialization order.
    Loopback device is special. It should be initialized at the very
    beginning.  Initialization order has been changed by
    Eric W. Biederman <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> and this change is non-obvious
    and important enough to add proper comment.
