                         if_iso88025subr.c if_var.h

  + rename and document an unused field in struct arpcom (field is still
    there so there are no ABI changes);
  + replace 5 redefinitions of the IPF2AC macro with one in if_arp.h
  Eventually (but before freezing the ABI) we need to get rid of
  struct arpcom (initially with the help of some smart #defines
  to avoid having to touch each and every driver, see below).
  Apart from the struct ifnet, struct arpcom now only stores a copy
  of the MAC address (ac_enaddr, but we already have another copy in
  the struct ifnet -- if_addrhead), and a netgraph-specific field
  which is _always_ accessed through the ifp, so it might well go
  into the struct ifnet too (where, besides, there is already an entry
  for AF_NETGRAPH data...)
  Too bad ac_enaddr is widely referenced by all drivers. But
  this can be fixed as follows:
  #define ac_enaddr       ac_if.the_original_ac_enaddr_in_struct_ifnet
  (note that the right hand side would likely be a pointer rather than
  the base address of an array.)
