   What ifconfig could do is to check the reference count and tell the user
   that the interface is in promisc mode anyways. Problem is just that the
   reference count is not user visible currently.

I definitely think, if there is any change, it does belong
in ifconfig.  In fact it should report it as "IFF_PROMISC(%d)"
so that it is explicit that this is not a binary state.
