After a migration, it is necessary to send a gratuitous ARP
from all running interfaces so that the rest of the network
is aware of its new location. However, some supported network
devices are unaware that they have been migrated. To avoid network
interruptions and other unwanted behavior, force a GARP on all
valid, running interfaces as part of the post_mobility_fixup
routine.
