    NAK. Please see the discussion on this and ifconfig hw for other devices.

    In summary - make the device refuse to ifconfig up without a valid
    address, allow it to come into existance without a valid address and then
    use ifconfig.

    Your patch also seems to break if there are several attached to a board.
