Yes, the first. And none of this will work if the 2nd...nth interfaces
have any network-layer addresses assigned, which means before joining
them to the agr you'll need to remove the automatically assigned IPv6
Are you really using NetBSD 1.6.3, as you say above, or is it a typo
for 6.1.3? In NetBSD 6 the infrastructure for resetting the interface
MAC addresses is already there and you can just look at a driver like
'wm' to see how it works. In NetBSD 1.6, though...
