 That tells me that the address is DETACHED during this time and not
 In other words, the interface thinks there is no carrier.
 Could you try changing my commit locally from -w 15 -W 5 to -w 15 -W 15
 and see if that helps at all?
 If not, do other numbers help? -w 120 -W 120 is insane, but it's worth
 trying to see if my theory is right.
 If so, we just have to increase the default numbers, and maybe in
 rc.conf as well OR look into why the interface is taking more than 5
 seconds to gain a carrier as sk0 is cabled yes?
