Not enough. GARP wasn't sent because of the check in arpannounce:

        if (ia->ia4_flags & (IN_IFF_NOTREADY | IN_IFF_DETACHED)) {
                ARPLOG(LOG_DEBUG, "%s not ready\n", ARPLOGADDR(ip));
        arprequest(ifp, ip, ip, enaddr);

So my change was to not set any flags if !(ip_dad_count > 0).
Do you have another idea to avoid the situation?

Nonetheless, I don't expect breaking ip_dad_count > 0 case, so I'll
restore it anyway.
