[Ltib] [patch] ipv4ll

Here is a proposed patch to provide support for IPv4LL (IPv4 link local addressing in the 169.254.*.* range per RFC3927). Combined with the previously integrated Avahi patch, this makes a complete Zeroconf stack.

The patch implements IPv4LL via the avahi-autoipd daemon. I did do some experimentation with the zcip applet in busybox as a lighter-weight alternative, but found the zcip applet was unable to understand aliased interfaces, which are a recommended practice.

When Avahi and avahi-autoipd are enabled, an additional "link local" option becomes available in config for each network interface. This may be used instead of or in addition to the dhcp option.

This one touches a lot of configuration parts -- review, comments, suggestions welcome!
