dev-manual, bsp-guide: Updates for init-ifupdown change.
Release 1.4 requires the user to create an append file to the new recipe init-ifupdown if they want to create their own custom /etc/network/interfaces file. Previously, they needed to append the netbase recipe. Changes needed in the migration section of the ref-manual as well as the exmaple used in the bsp-guide.
