it's a dumb solution. you're either solving the wrong problem or using
the wrong solution. but if you would like to continue going down the
wrong road here's the info you seem to want:
this ioctl will return an error if the device is either up or if
the name already exists. i would imagine that it's easier to parse
/proc/net/wireless then it will be to keep track of what names you've
allocated, when to run your script and a host of other issues.
note, a grep on the 2.4.18 source tree finds 0 hits for wlan%d, one
hit for wvlan%d and 9 for eth%d (and it's only 9 because most drivers
(including the wireless drivers) call alloc_netdev or init_netdev -
both of which allocate ethN names).
