According to RFC5227 section 2.3: The host may begin legitimately using the IP
address immediately after sending the first of the two ARP Announcements; the
sending of the second ARP Announcement may be completed asynchronously,
concurrent with other networking operations the host may wish to perform.

This behavior is recently changed by commit 30d445bd acd: inform address is
good only when going in ongoing state.
Currently we only let the acd user know that the address is good after all
announce messages have been send. 

So I request to revert this commit.
