No. Everything that would legitimately be available in an xifnet
structure is already made available through other interfaces. The
only reason programs might need to look at a struct ifnet is because
they're mucking about in kernel memory, in which case they need the
real one and not a "sanitized" version. (This is why I moved struct
ifnet to <net/if_var.h> in the first place.)
