Follow-up Comment #5, patch #6370 (project lwip):

This seems much better, thanks. I'm a bit unconvinced of some of the naming
("ENABLE_SELF" etc.) and think just referring to it as loopback packets may be
clearer, but that's a detail to deal with later.

I'd like to avoid introducing backward-compatibility issues - especially
since loopif_poll() is a function we would only be introducing for the first
time in 1.3.0, so it would seem a shame to do so knowing we're likely to be
obsoleting it immediately.

So, in advance of 1.3.0 may I suggest a future-compatibility patch. Even if
there are question marks over the detail of Luca's change, if we can agree on
the principle of there being a netif_poll() function in future for the NO_SYS
case, then applying this before 1.3.0 will save a bit of hassle (more for our
users than for us!).
