Log Message:
Commit Jeremy Chadwick's netwait script.  This script adds a timeout period for network activity while the system is starting.  There's an assumption in the system that link state means the network is working.  Some NICs such as the realtek based chips tend to go up and down causing the system to think everything is ok and then losing access to remote file systems, ntp/rdate, etc.  

This is not an ideal solution, but it does help.

Based on FreeBSD PR conf/151063

It's quite possible they'll integrate something similar in their new defaultroute script in FreeBSD 8/9.  

Note this does not include the rc.conf.5 changes yet.

Modified Files:
        Makefile (r1.19 -> r1.20)
        rc.conf (r1.28 -> r1.29)

Added Files:
        netwait (r1.1)
