Subjectethernet and pointopoint

Is there reason why I can't set pointopoint for ethernet? I have
to computers (and two 100mbps ethernet cards) connected via null-modem
ethernet cable (with no hub in between). So since there's no way
to have more than two hosts talking to each other for all intended
purposes it IS a pointopoint link.

looking at net/core/dev.c:dev_change_flags() I see
that I can't pass IFF_POINTOPOINT to it via ioctl, and
it will be just sillently dropped, with no error reported
back to ifconfig.
