- Extend the ng_eiface(4) control message set with getifaddr, getifindex, getenaddr and setenaddr, c.f. ng_ether(4).
Allows code to get a handle on the associated ngeth# interface, and change its properties without knowing the unit number.
- Renamed NGM_EIFACE_SET (set) to NGM_EIFACE_SET_ENADDR (setenaddr) for clarity, and to match ng_ether(4).
- Clean up some extraneous code.
- Increased max MTU to 9000.
- Document the new interfaces in ng_eiface.4.
Fix: Apply the following patch in /usr/src of -CURRENT.

May be you have some ideas/comments on this. And note, that now

I think this more general solution is better. I haven't started writing it,
since I can't yet understand which approach described in above links,
is prefered by developers.
P.S. You have forgot to bump NGM_EIFACE_COOKIE in your patch.
