The current AUTOIP implementation generates the first address to probe from
the two LSBs of the MAC address.

The attached patch allows the lwIP application developer to override this
algorithm providing an extern function. The default behaviour is unchanged.
It also renames RandomIPAddr and autoip_create_rand_addr() to IPAddr and
autoip_create_addr(). The original names are misleading since the address is
by no means random (and never has been).

Might it be of anybody's interest?
