Ifconfig fooX -alias (bug) PR needed (maybe two)
This PR needs additional details and description please
I just want to make sure this doesn't get missed.
It also caused my RPi3 to panic because of dhclient as dteske noted at BSDCON
we have this in dhclient-script
eval "$IFCONFIG $interface inet -alias $old_ip_address $medium"
(In reply to Diane Bruce from comment #1)
Can you provide more details on how I would set up my RPi3 to duplicate your panic.
A kernel panic caused by an ifconfig command is probably a seperate bug, as this bug mostly describes bad behavior in the parser of ifconfig that is accepting the -alias command with no address given, and attempting to make some change when it should just return a syntax error with usage().
Argh, now re-reading the initial notes this is why the (maybe two) is there.
I have create a seperate bug for the panic, and add cross "see also" pointers on both PR's. (PR228987)
Diana can you provide any help information to the new bug I created, which I added you to cc: at PR228987
