commit 9dd91a8330a968aaf970d32dd3a72f1e5dd72b43
Author: Ed Maste <>

    add SIOCGIFDATA ioctl
    For interfaces that do not support SIOCGIFMEDIA (for which there are
    quite a few) the only fallback is to query the interface for
    if_data->ifi_link_state.  While it's possible to get at if_data for an
    interface via getifaddrs(3) or sysctl, both are heavy weight mechanisms.
    SIOCGIFDATA is a simple ioctl to retrieve this fast with very little
    resource use in comparison.  This implementation mirrors that of other
    similar ioctls in FreeBSD.
