First, an apology for my error in saying the ciped-cb daemon won't
stay running without a peer.  Static listening daemons have been used
for years - it's just been awhile since I last used one.

However, it is true that your cipcb0 device won't be fully enabled
until you have a daemon running.  If you simply load the module, it is
*normal* for ifconfig -a to show the cipcb0 device as neither UP nor
RUNNING.  Running the daemon (with a valid options file) will bring
the cipcb0 device the rest of the way up.

You can start the daemon without any ptpaddr or ipaddr options in the
options file and then do a manual ifconfig, but it's normal to let the
daemon assign the addresses.
