I've not checked the details of the new netdde stuff, but I'm assuming
this does not work currently because the SIOC[GS]IF family of ioctls
(also assuming they are supported by netdde) do not have a link/mapping
between the /dev/ethN to the ifr_name from struct ifr, if so wouldn't
it be better to hide this fact in glibc so that not every and each
program doing low-level network setup needs to be adapted?
