|  Log:
|  When the local link address is changed, send out gratuitous ARPs
|  to notify other nodes about the address change. Otherwise, they
|  might try and keep using the old address until their arp table
|  entry times out and the address is refreshed.
|  Maybe this ought to be done for INET6 addresses as well but i have
|  no idea how to do it. It should be pretty straightforward though.
