There's a small error in this pat of the summary.  It is not the case
that stf interfaces are created instead of stf0 interfaces in all cases.
Here's a table showing the changes.

Command		DEV	Version
ifconfig stf	stf0	old
ifconfig stf0	stf0	old
ifconfig 6to4	<fail>	old
ifconfig stf	stf	new
ifconfig stf0	stf0	new
ifconfig 6to4	6to4	new
