ray0: firmware version 85

pcmcia0: card irq 9

	If the link0 flag is specified during the initial ifconfig of the
ray device, the card doesn't seem to initialize. None of the lights blink
or turn on, and the kernel prints the following messages:

ray0: starting DAD for fe80:0004::0200:f1ff:fe11:80ae
stray interrupt 9
ray0: could not run DAD, driver problem?

ifconfig ray0 shows:

	media: IEEE802.11 FH2 adhoc
	status: no network
	inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
	inet6 fe80::200:f1ff:fe11:80ae@ray0 prefixlen 64 tentative scopeid 0x4

However, if instead I ifconfig ray0 without link0, the card comes up fine,
and I can then "ifconfig ray0 link0"
# ifconfig ray0 inet netmask 0xffffff00 link0
