in fact, if we want it to be even simpler, you could add the ip address
without a alias interface wit iproute2

[]# ip addr show eth0
[]# ip addr add www.xxx.yyy.zzz/netmask dev eth0

this will add an ip address on that interface, and

[]# ip route

if you're done:

[]# ip addr del www.xxx.yyy.zzz/netmask dev eth0

should now show you a route into that different subnet

this means, no mess with alias interfaces or separate settings, or anything.

to be sure, restart shorewall service (in the event it filters on the
interface ip addresses)
