<net/if.h> is standardized by POSIX, but 'struct ifreq' is not (the only
portable struct in that header is 'struct if_nameindex').

Solaris 10 has struct ifreq, also provided by <net/if.h>, but with
different fields:

struct ifreq
	char ifrn_name[16];
      } ifr_ifrn;
	struct sockaddr ifru_addr;
	struct sockaddr ifru_dstaddr;
	struct sockaddr ifru_broadaddr;
	struct sockaddr ifru_netmask;
	struct sockaddr ifru_hwaddr;
	short int ifru_flags;
	int ifru_ivalue;
	int ifru_mtu;
	struct ifmap ifru_map;
	char ifru_slave[16];
	char ifru_newname[16];
	__caddr_t ifru_data;
      } ifr_ifru;

struct ifreq {

 char ifr_name[16];
 union {
  struct sockaddr ifru_addr;
  struct sockaddr ifru_dstaddr;
  char ifru_oname[16];
  struct sockaddr ifru_broadaddr;
  int ifru_index;
  short ifru_flags;
  int ifru_metric;
  char ifru_data[1];
  char ifru_enaddr[6];
  int if_muxid[2];
  struct ifr_ppaflags {
   short ifrup_flags;
   short ifrup_filler;
   uint_t ifrup_ppa;
  } ifru_ppaflags;
  struct ifr_dnld_reqs {
   uint32_t v_addr;
   uint32_t m_addr;
   uint32_t ex_addr;
   uint32_t size;
  } ifru_dnld_req;
  struct ifr_fddi_stats {
   uint32_t stat_size;
   uint32_t fddi_stats;
  } ifru_fddi_stat;
  struct ifr_netmapents {
   uint32_t map_ent_size,
   uint32_t fddi_map_ent;
  } ifru_netmapent;
  struct ifr_fddi_gen_struct {
   uint32_t ifru_fddi_gioctl;
   uint32_t ifru_fddi_gaddr;
  } ifru_fddi_gstruct;
 } ifr_ifru;

ifr_name is common between the two, but I'm thinking the ioctl's are
going to be Linux-specific, so we're better off conditionalizing the
code to not even attempt use of 'struct ifreq' outside Linux.
