The stf(4) interface name does not conform with the default naming
convention for interfaces, because only one stf(4) interface can exist
in the system.
This disallow the use of unit numbers different than 0, however, it is
possible to create the clone without specify the unit number (wildcard).
In the wildcard case we must update the interface name before return.
This fix an infinite recursion in pf code that keeps track of network
interfaces and groups:
1 - a group for the cloned type of the interface is added (stf in this
2 - the system will now try to add an interface named stf (instead of
stf0) to stf group;
3 - when pfi_kif_attach() tries to search for an already existing 'stf'
interface, the 'stf' group is returned and thus the group is added as an interface of itself;
This will now cause a crash at the first attempt to traverse the groups
which the stf interface belongs (which loops over itself).
