ifconfig_foo0 syntax

I've been having trouble with a bridge interface.  It seemed logical
to me to do

ifconfig_bridge0="addm foo0 addm bar0 inet"

but ifconfig(8) does not accept "inet" after "addm".

(perhaps I should have put the inet bit at the front?)

In any case, I came up with a patch that allows me to do

ifconfig_bridge0="addm foo0; addm bar0; inet"

which translates into three different ifconfig invocations.

there's probably a better / cleaner way to do this...
