I would go so far as to say that it's trivial to do this on any
machine if you have access to the hardware and source to the device
driver. I know from personal experience that this is true of both the
LANCE and the SONIC ethernet controllers. The only thing that makes
it difficult on a Sun or VAX is that you have to hack the kernel. A
PC or Mac user has no such problem to contend with...
