ifconfig and address parameters

- When a new address is added to existing interface, but no netmask or prefix length for that address is specified, the result is an address with invalid netmask. Probably a call to set_to_defaults() is needed somewhere in the kernel code.
- [Enhancement] Broadcast address is also not handled correctly, when not explicitly specified. First, setting new address for an interface does not set the correct broadcast address - the broadcast address should be dependent on network mask, not on address class. Second, adding new address to existing interface leaves broadcast address field completely empty. (The same set_to_defaults() call should solve this second case too.)
