What do you want it for and where do you want it? I think there were
plans to export if_dname and if_dunit via sysctls, but I don't think
that ever happened and they aren't really ment to be user visiable.
There's also no requirement that ("%s%d", if_dname, if_dunit) ever have
been the name of the interface (for instance in enhanced cloners such as
stf(4) and vlan(4)).
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
