Description of problem:
The whinge message when the arping check fails a Duplicate Address Detect
gives the IP involved but not the MAC of the responder. It would aid the
admin if this information was output.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up two systems with a single IP
2. Bring up interface
"Error, some other host already uses address 10.105.50.58."
Anything giving the responding MAC as well. Plain output from arping might
suffice (it is currently run with a silencing switch; perhaps remove this and
divert the output to a variable for use in the fail-case). Possibly some
massaging of the output would be needed.
