Fwd: Better link-local code

It could do both: assign a link local address on the wired
connection(if there is some link) and also look for a new AP on the
wireless card
It doesn't hurt to have a link local ip definie on the wired
connection, because they can't interferate with other ip that a dhcp
could offer on the wireless card.

the problem is when no dhcp are found on both wireless and wired
connection, we can't assign a link local adress on both i think.
