Another option that avoids #ifdef's in bpf.h is to point all if_bpf's at
a static structure that's initialized s.t. the list pointer is null.
OTOH if we embed the data structure in the ifnet then in the no bpf
config case the stub bpfattach code would just initialize the list head
and again there'd be no issue.

I think we can actually make bpf a loadable module now that bpf_if is
exposed; I'll look at that.  That should eliminate all these hacks we've
been carrying around.
