Well, as it was already pointed out by someone, $2 is in exactly the same
form as the option passed to pppd. (Un)fortunately, pppd is flexible
enough to accept port in both /dev/ttyS1 and plain ttyS1 forms. 
As a result, $2 can also be in one of the above two forms. The solution
would be to detect in ip-up (and ip-down) which one is used and convert
it to "ttyS1" form.
