:  Forgot to mention that it's imported from FreeBSD, it's not my work.
:Anyway, the patches are minimal.
    It looks good.  I'll do a bit of testing with a HUB and then commit
   Matt, since you are on it. I also took a look at IFF_STATICARP,
but given that the ARP table seems to be now per CPU I got stuck. I
really needed the monitor mode feature *fast* and I didn't spend much
time reading the rest of the source. I would like to give
IFF_STATICARP a try as well so I'd like to know if there are
particular details that I should keep in mind. Thanks.
If it's there, and you can see it, it's real.
If it's not there, and you can see it, it's virtual.
If it's there, and you can't see it, it's transparent.
If it's not there, and you can't see it, you erased it.
