I had to admit my patch did not hit the point, because the
matter is more complex than first meets the eye. A change
set has now been applied to the git head. This issue must
achieve a positive resolution of

  # ifconfig --up -i eth2 -A
  (no output; '--up' must be pending until after iface selection)
  # ifconfig eth2
  (multi-line output)
  # ifconfig eth2 -arp up
  (no output; in addition to address, NOARP and UP must be set)

Everyone is cordially invited to craft more test cases.
