Details

Description:
If I have multiple IP=static profiles in my network.d/, then always the first one will be used when net-auto-wired is called.

Ideally netcfg should be able to arping the gateway in the profile, to make sure that profile works on the link.

After the patch:
Apr 15 10:30:23 vangogh ifplugd(eth0)[7078]: client: :: 00-192.0.2.233 up ARPing gateway 192.0.2.254 failed
Apr 15 10:30:23 vangogh ifplugd(eth0)[7078]: client: [fail]
Apr 15 10:30:27 vangogh ifplugd(eth0)[7078]: client: :: 10-198.51.100.27 up [done]
Apr 15 10:30:27 vangogh ifplugd(eth0)[7078]: Program executed successfully.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
netcfg 2.8.0-1
* config and/or log files etc.
N/A

Steps to reproduce:
Plug the computer into a network where the first profile net-auto-wired sees is not suitable. See net-auto-wired will still use that profile.
This task depends upon

I like the idea, but
1) we don't depend on iputils, so arping needn't be installed
2) couldn't this break other scenarios using ethernet for their connection?
