Phonet: back-end for autoconfigured addresses
Rémi Denis-Courmont [Wed, 9 Sep 2009 00:00:05 +0000 (00:00 +0000)]
In some cases, the network device driver knows what layer-3 address the
device should have. This adds support for the Phonet stack to
automatically request from the driver and add that address to the
network device.
