Modified Files:
	basesrc/sbin/ifconfig: ifconfig.8 ifconfig.c

Log Message:
Add a new -s option to make it easier to test the link-level status
(i.e., 10baseT carrier/no carrier) of an interface from scripts

ifconfig -s <interface> will exit with a false status if the interface
reports its unconnected.

-s also works in conjunction with -l and -a, filtering out interfaces
which are reporting down.

Also, add -b (which shows only broadcast interfaces with -l and -a).

I find these options useful in network autoconfig scripts for mobile
