NetBSD support for multiple data link types on an interface, from David
Young <dyoung@ojctech.com>, with some minor changes by Jason R. Thorpe <thorpej@netbsd.org>, and further changes by me to support it on BPF systems lacking BIOCGDLTLIST and other platforms lacking an equivalent feature. Update Jason Thorpe's e-mail address (Zembu is going away, if it hasn't done so already). Add APIs to map DLT names to DLT values and vice versa.
