 	src/sbin/ifconfig [netbsd-2]: ifconfig.c
 Log Message:
 Pull up revision 1.142 (requested by riz in ticket #5517):
 The change in revision 1.38 (in 1997!) was wrong.  If we don't want the kernel
 to automatically bring up interfaces, then we should move that code into
 ifconfig(8) and out of the kernel, not cycle the interface up and down.  Fixes
 PR 9400 -- ifconfig(8) was not working as documented.
