I switched from base ppp to mpd5 for my "home" router/firewall (small
APU2C4) as ppp consumes a lot of CPU usage (100% CPU in fact) and is 
unable to use multiple cores for a single PPPOE connection. It works
well but as I have a dynamic IP and a DYNDNS-like hostname I don't see
any option in mpd5 to execute a script whenever the IP address changes.
There is set "iface up-script" but it is called only when the
interface changes it's state to UP (first connection).

This is my configuration:

Any idea if I missed something in the documentation?
Otherwise, is there a way to detect an address IP changes in devd?
