Detailed Description

Network Interface Device structure.

Used to handle a network interface on top of a device driver instance. There can be many net_if_dev instance against the same device.

Such interface is mainly to be used by the link layer, but is also tight to a network context: it then makes the relation with a network context and the network device.

Because of the strong relationship between a device driver and such network interface, each net_if_dev should be instantiated by one of the network device init macros found in net_if.h.
