    native ATM VCs, owned by atmarpd. When atmarpd clears them for IP

    messages, and any IP - typically I'd expect to find a SYN there)
    is removed from the native ATM VC's queue, and fed into the non-ATM
    part of the stack, for de-encapsulation, etc.

    Note that ATMARP will be delivered again to the "native ATM" VC's
    queue, because that's how atmarpd receives ATMARP messages.
