/etc/rc.d/netwait times out on $netwait_ip

FreeBSD tp-gw 9.3-STABLE FreeBSD 9.3-STABLE #0 r274163M: Thu Nov  6 12:24:46 EST 2014     root@tp-gw:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/FW_YQ_64  amd64

001.000006 [2258] netmap_attach             success for re0

Also media needed to be set to 1000baseT-FDX since auto-negotiate did not succeed

After boot the primary interface ip address is not pingable, although other addresses such as default route etc respond normally

tcpdump during ping shows that packets arrive on lo0 with source address

ifconfig re0 down; ifconfig re0 up

a small script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ to implement this seems to deal with the issue, although it would be good to know why this is happening

This problem also occurs on FreeBSD 9.2-STABLE i386 with interface em0

the same fix works for it.

This problem also occurs on FreeBSD 10.1-STABLE amd64 with interface igb0

the same fix works for it.
