 Bisecting the time period between working and non-working kernels gets 
 us to the following commit.  A kernel built from sources just before 
 this commit works, while a kernel built from after the commits fails.
 Module Name:    src
 Committed By:   ozaki-r
 Date:           Thu Jun 30 01:34:53 UTC 2016
 Modified Files:
          src/sys/net: if_spppsubr.c
          src/sys/netinet: if_arp.c in.c
          src/sys/netinet6: in6.c nd6.c
 Log Message:
 Make sure that ifaddr is published after its initialization finished
 Basically we should insert an item to a collection (say a list) after
 item's initialization has been completed to avoid accessing an item
 that is initialized halfway. ifaddr (in{,6}_ifaddr) isn't processed
 like so and needs to be fixed.
 In order to do so, we need to tweak {arp,nd6}_rtrequest that depend
 on that an ifaddr is inserted during its initialization; they explore
 interface's address list to determine that rt_getkey(rt) of a given
 rtentry is in the list to know whether the route's interface should
 be a loopback, which doesn't work after the change. To make it work,
 first check RTF_LOCAL flag that is set in rt_ifa_addlocal that calls
 {arp,nd6}_rtrequest eventually. Note that we still need the original
 code for the case to remove and re-add a local interface route.
