please review (@Chris or Mark) and approve the following downport.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8163181
Original Change: http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk9/dev/jdk/rev/40c3550625a2
New Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~clanger/webrevs/8163181.8udev/
Mail discussion: http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/net-dev/2016-September/010207.html

The main motivation for this downport is the bug in the AIX version of enumIPv6Interfaces.

As the whole change is merely formatting, I decided to ask for a full downport. The patch does not apply cleanly, I had to resolve a little bit and also added some further formatting cleanups to be mostly identical with the JDK 9 version of NetworkInterface.c now.

Thanks and best regards
