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?
