 	src/sbin/ifconfig: ifconfig.c
 Log Message:
 Trying the old "ifconfig <name> x.x.x.x down" issue again:
 if the kernel does not set the interface up after we set an address,
 do it explicitly, unless we (previously) set it down on user request.
 This will allow the network drivers to be "fixed" while keeping visible
 behaviour the same. Part of fixing PR 30694.
