df: Ethernet II as oposed to 802.3

Not sure why you'd want to do this.

From memory, I seem to remember reading the kernel code, and finding the Linux somehow transparently copes with Ethernet II, 802.3, and 802.1.

Just had a look at it.  This sems to be delt with in the file
.../linux/net/ethernet/eth.c.

(For this you just roll your own)
