Getting ip address for docker0 fails #202

What were you trying to do?

Run telepresence with container mode.

What did you expect to happen?

Telepresence to get ip address for docker0 interface.

What happened instead?

Telepresence crashes because it can't parse ip address. Newer versions of ifconfig have inet instead of inet addr in output so regex fails.

I released the fix, just upgrade to v0.54 and it should work.
