    SIOCDEVICE, yes. That's my attempt to create an ioctl interface for
    controlling devices. It's defined by the hdlc patch, discussed about
    a year (?) ago here. Yes, I think I should post a note here.

    SIOCDEVPRIVATE - an older method of controlling net devices. IMHO, not
    very useful, could possibly be used as a devel hack. Many net drivers
    use it.

    A new patch which applies to 2.5.3 is in the usual place:
    This is what I want included in base kernel.
