    etc                  network.subr pccard_ether 
  pccard_ether rev 1.51:
      Search the list of up interfaces provided by "ifconfig -ul" instead of
      greping for UP in "ifconfig $ifn".  This eliminates a dependancy on /usr.
  pccard_ether rev 1.53 and network.subr rev 1.173:
    Introduce a new method ipv6if which attemptes to figure out if an
    interface is an IPv6 interface.
    Use this method to decide if we should attempt to configure an interface
    with an IPv6 address in pccard_ether.  The mechanism pccard_ether uses
    to do this is unsuited to the task because it assumes the list of
    interfaces it is passed is the full list of IPv6 interfaces and makes
    decissions based on that.  This is at least a step in the right
    direction and is probably about as much as we can MFC safely.
