	i ran some experiment with IPv6, and now I think in_pcbpurgeif() is
	incorrect.  it should not leave multicast groups the user application
	have joined.

	for example:
	- have an interface if0.
	- run a multicast application.  join a multicast group on if0.
	- remove if0 (for example, pcmcia card).
	  in_pcbpurgeif() nukes all multicast groups joined by the application.
	- re-insert if0.   now, the application has no multicast group with it.

	if you agree that in_pcbpurgeif() should not leave multicast groups
	for pcb, we should revisit in_purgeaddr()...
