	ath* becomes IFF_RUNNING without mac address being set to
	ifp->if_addrlist (AF_LINK sockaddr).  it causes trouble with IPv6 code
	(no linklocal address will be assigned on IFF_UP).
	for instance, if i have the following file as /etc/ifconfig.ath0,
	linklocal address won't be assigned:
	how should we fix it?  when does AF_LINK sockaddr gets assigned?
