I think the commet matches to the existing (i.e., rev. 1.77, not 1.78)

The in_ifinit calls ifioctl SIOCSIFADDR for every address assigned and
I guess the comment want to say that

	- callee will initialize if it finds that the address is the
          first one.
	- callee will validate the address if necessary.

If a callee really need to validate an address, just doing it only for
the first address doesn't make sense.
