vnics/etherstubs missing initial link state
vnics and etherstubs don't properly initialize their link state. Most drivers do this based upon getting the link state interrupts that they have. However, while vnics logically do something similar, the interrupt of sorts is really a link state change notification from the upstream source. This means that vnics are in an unknown link state until their upstream changes.
Instead, we should initialize it to the state of the parent device. In addition, etherstubs should always be considered up.
