OFF carrier state is setup in probe() open() and suspend() functions.
The carrier ON state is managed in macb_handle_link_change().

Hi,

This patch follows the discussion about IPv6 and macb interface
("ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready" with IPv6)
It may not address all aspects of the discussion, so please do comments...

I am still wondering if netif_carrier_off() is needed in macb_probe() *after*
the call to register_netdev() in addition to its inclusion in the open()
function. As I saw it in sevral drivers, I kept it.

I have tested several suspend/resume loops, and I think that just calling
netif_carrier_off() in suspend() function is sufficient: am I right?

Thanks for your help,
Best regards,

Applied to net-next, thanks.
