With the following change, all network interface modules as well as most
applcations that monitor network interface statistics will need to be
recompiled since struct if_data has grown.

  Modified files:
    .                    UPDATING 
    sys/sys              param.h 
    sys/net              if.c if.h 
  Add a new variable, ifi_epoch, to struct if_data.  It is set to the last
  time the interface counters were zeroed, currently the time if_attach()
  was called.  It is indentended to be a valid value for RFC2233's
  ifCounterDiscontinuityTime and to make it easier for applications to
  verify that the interface they find at a given index is the one that was
  there last time they looked.
  An if_epoch "compatability" macro has not been created as ifi_epoch has
  never been a member of struct ifnet.
