When static IP is used together with Polling on a card that does not support it, the system fails to assign the IP address at start-up.

ifconfig <if> polling returns with error (ifconfig: polling: Invalid argument) on such network adapters. Maybe a test should be done to check whether the card actually supports polling before 'polling' is written to rc.conf.
