Description

Currently its possible to create 2 pairs of interfaces in af-packet ips/tap mode in different modes, one pair in ips mode and the other in tap. This should be disallowed as certain assumptions are made in ips mode that may cause the tap mode to not work reliably or in undefined/unknown ways.

Additonally, if within a pair of interfaces, one is tap and the other is ips, consider this is a fatal error.
