Note that you can have PFIL_HOOKS but not pf nor ipf.

For pppoe I did it this way, as (1) I couldn't find anything better and
(2) bailing out early seemed not a good idea as there are certainly valid
configs where the underlying interface just can not go away, so a kernel
w/o PFIL_HOOKS still is safe.
