Description

If an ethernet interface's link goes down and up too rapidly, the 'up' event sent by pfSctl ("linkup start") can be ignored by the rate limiting code that prevents multiple events from being triggered too rapidly.

As such, if someone using DHCP has their link cycle rapidly, then dhclient will be stopped but will never restart.

This happens on RELENG_2_0 as well so we'll need to pull back the fix there as well if any pfSense code changes are required.

linkup events will never be aggregated by check_reload_status hence no missing.
