#11160: Mythbackend needs to wait for network before starting on fast-booting

 Since the 0.26 update, mythbackend is much more picky about requiring a
 network interface to be up before it starts. I believe that main protocol
 server in mythbackend terminates, taking the backend with it, when it does
 not have access to the IP addresses it on which it was told to listen. I
 have an SSD-based backend that boots pretty quickly. The problem is that
 my network isn't ready when mythbackend starts which causes the backend to
 detect no network and shutdown.

 I can fix this by starting the backend manually several seconds after the
 box boots via a simple script that is triggered when X comes up. I know
 that this is not a robust and general solution. Perhaps there is a way to
 make the backend more robust and tolerant to this somehow?  Maybe add a
 retry loop or the like?

 Here is a snipette from my backend log if I do NOT use the script which
 clearly shows the issue:
