You make an excellent point and I agree, but I'm unsure of some of the

Is promisc mode controllable from UCI?  I didn't think it was but I can't
tell from looking at these parts of netifd.

Help me understand the extent of this implementation.  Looks like each of
these would need modification.  Did i miss anything?
  static const struct blobmsg_policy dev_attrs[__DEV_ATTR_MAX] = {
  device_merge_settings(struct device *dev, struct device_settings *n)
  device_init_settings(struct device *dev, struct blob_attr **tb)
  device_dump_status(struct blob_buf *b, struct device *dev)
  system_if_get_settings(struct device *dev, struct device_settings *s)
  system_if_apply_settings(struct device *dev, struct device_settings *s,
unsigned int apply_mask)

UCI is all passthrough, right? nothing there would have to change?
