[En-Nut-Discussion] Unnecessary writing accesses to the eeprom while saving of the network config

Hi all,

I reviewed some patches on Sourceforge and found an earlier patch from
Rich Peters who modified NutNetIfSetup() to not automatically save the
Network config every time it is called. This will eat up the writing
cycles of the eeprom or flash as it is called every time the device is
powered up.

I would vote to remove the automatic saving in this function. Perhaps
this is a good starting point to think about the whole network
configuration process again?

Any ideas?
