I'm trying to configure a lagg(4) interface out of rc.conf.  FreeBSD
doesn't want to initialize the interface at boot.  I'm obviously
missing some little thing.  I'm successfully loading if_lagg into the
kernel, so that's not the problem.

I can configure the interface at the command line if I do a "ifconfig
lagg0 create" and then enter the configuration, but there doesn't seem
to be a rc.conf flag to tell the system to create an interface?

Here's my rc.conf for these interfaces:

ifconfig_lagg0="laggproto lacp laggport em3 laggport em7 netmask 0xffff0000"

Any suggestions?
