I would still like to know  why statistics that are so closely related
are gathered in different places. Why is ifp->if_opkts++ in the device
driver? My  first theory was  that it must  have something to  do with
packet fragmentation  where it wouldn't  be possible to  determine the
number of packets  higher up in the protocol stack,  but I can't think
of a scenario where this would be the case....
