Um, I'm not sure I follow.  The situation when we need to do
gratuitous arp is after save/restore or migration.  This is somewhat
analogous to hibernation/suspend, except that hibernation/suspend
pretty much assumes that the system was previously not running, not
previously on a different switch port etc.

Perhaps netfront needs to do something special.
