I made a (bad) patch for #820
(http://dev.haiku-os.org/attachment/ticket/820/preflet.patch) and
after receving some calls about refreshing that on the actual rev i'm
asking to myself if my work can be recovered in part, in other words
what i can save from the Trash.

This is a link to the previous discussion :

As usual the discussion died, and anything of concrete was decided at
the end, so my questions are :
What we should do for the preflet? Is an add-on API needed (maybe the
one in tests/kits/net/preflet)?

Looking at the code my personal plan could be this :

* Remove some parts (Ethernet*, PPPoE* classes for example)
* Fix to follow the coding guidelines and fix other issues that my
incapacity made
* Extract (and improve?) the add-on API from the test preflet and
adapt it to my code
* Write an Ethernet add-on
