Just wondering. I wanted to set the IFF_UP flag on a device, with;
ifreqp->ifr_flags |= IFF_UP;
result = ioctl(skfd,SIOCSIFFLAGS, ifreqp);
But, I notice some messages in the syslog like;
May 21 20:19:19 angel kernel: eth1: Promiscuous mode enabled.
May 21 20:19:22 angel kernel: eth1: Setting full-duplex based on MII #32 link partner ability of 45e1.
So, it looks like it's setting others too (though ifconfig doesn't
mention anything about promiscous mode enabled). Should I be doing the
"OR with what's there already" or not ?
