Hrm. Cannot imagine that as I usually do installkernel/installworld/mergemaster
at the same time before booting once (minor version/fixes upgrade),
because I don't want to make exactly this stuff happen (I could forget
to do the installworld, yadda yadda...).

Um, right, my fault. But that is not the issue though:
got# ifconfig gif0
gif0: flags=8011<UP,POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST> mtu 1280
got# ifconfig gif1
gif1: flags=8011<UP,POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST> mtu 1280

I hear ya. Well what I can do anyway; do the upgrade to RELEASE-p2 and
then reinstall everything again during the process and make sure that I
don't miss anything during the upgrade (in case I really did forget the
installworld or something). And then I'd report back with a new pr, if
this would happen again.
In meantime I guess you should close the pr, doing this stressed little
bulky bugreporting system a favour, not having to list this report
anymore (since this could take quite a while and finally might forget
about it, if it does not repeat).
Thanks for your quick response anyway; I'm impressed.
