 Log Message:
 Pull up following revision(s) (requested by msaitoh in ticket #1801):
 	sbin/ifconfig/ifconfig.c: revision 1.173 via patch
         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
         (i.e. "ifconfig <name> x.x.x.x down").
         This will allow the network drivers to be "fixed" while keeping visible
         behaviour the same. Part of fixing PR 30694.
