Summary

libifconfig: multiple feature additions

Added the ability to:

  • Create virtual interfaces
  • Create vlan interfaces
  • Get interface fib
  • Get interface groups
  • Get interface status
  • Get nd6 info
  • Get media status
  • Get additional ifaddr info in a convenient struct
  • Get vhids
  • Get carp info
  • Get lagg and laggport status
  • Add functions for looping over all interfaces and ifaddrs
  • Add more examples

Note that this is a backwards-incompatible change. But that's ok, because it's
a private library.

Test Plan

Running at $WORK with proprietary client

Due to time constraints on my end, I intend to commit within 48 hours unless a reviewer raises major issues.

This revision was not accepted when it landed; it landed in state Needs Review.Feb 23 2018, 3:11 AM
This revision was automatically updated to reflect the committed changes.

For the record, this PR is based on the content at https://github.com/Savagedlight/libifconfig/pull/46 . IMHO, all new libifconfig development should continue in SVN in the FreeBSD tree.

For that to happen the original author will need a commit bit, which I'll be more than happy to mentor.
