    arp: Implement sticky ARP mode for interfaces.
    Provide sticky ARP flag for network interface which marks it as the
    "sticky" one similarly to what we have for bridges. Once interface is
    marked sticky, any address resolved using the ARP will be saved as a
    static one in the ARP table. Such functionality may be used to prevent
    ARP spoofing or to decrease latencies in Ethernet networks.
    The drawbacks include potential limitations in usage of ARP-based
    load-balancers and high-availability solutions such as carp(4).
    The implemented option is disabled by default, therefore should not
    impact the default behaviour of the networking stack.
