Unfortunetaly this is contrary to a lot of PRs and requests on mailing
lists out there that actually want the netif/network_ipv6 to be run
_before_ things come up. Espescially pf really needs this to avoid
rules that needs to do per paket lookups of the interface address.
Further ipfw has a default option being setaable at compile time and as
TUNABLE to handle this window.
Bjoern A. Zeeb The greatest risk is not taking one.
