If you're running 2.4 or higher you can "unplumb" the device. Using
the autopush facility you can push a module on top of the driver,
/dev/le or whatever. Then "plumb" the device again and voila! There's
Beware though that it will sit below arp and it is thus raw ethernet
frames flowing through it.
I have tried to muck around to be able to push a module between ip and
arp, but I will need the source to ifconfig unless I want to spend an
inordinate amount of time trying to reverse engineer it.
