SUMMARY: IPMP with multiple "testpartners"

A huge thanks to Ed Quillen, who pointed to me to Sun infodoc ID70062, which
details this configuration.

Those running IPMP take note- implementing the config as defined in this
infodoc eliminates your defaultrouter as a SPOF.  Even if the router dies,
IPMP will not erroneously report the NIC as dead.  Well worth implementing,
IMO, especially for those running VCS/IPMultiNicB. 

Thanks again Ed!
