7.0 - ifconfig create is not working as expected?



Hi,

I was using following command in FreeBSD 6.2:

# ifconfig lo1 create inet 172.16.16.2 netmask 255.255.255.0

In FreeBSD 7.0 I got an error:

# ifconfig lo1 create inet 172.16.16.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
ifconfig: inet: bad value

But it is working splitted in to two commands:
# ifconfig lo1 create
# ifconfig lo1 inet 172.16.16.2 netmask 255.255.255.0

Is this expected behavior or should I file a PR?
