	i think the correct solution is either of them:
	- change ex driver, so that the initialization code will not return
	  to the caller until the initialization gets perfectly finished.
	- set IFF_UP | IFF_RUNNING only when initialization is perfectly
	  finished.  (similar but allows upper-layers not to hang up)

	basically ND/DAD portion is not the place to workaround here.
