implementation of SIOCGIFFCOUNT

is there a specific reason for SIOCGIFCOUNT not being implemented
in the kernel ? All occurences lead to net/core/dev.c dev_ioctl(...)
which just returns -EINVAL for this command. So one has to guess
the number of struct ifreq structures to pass to a SIOCGIFCONF

enlighten me, please ;-)
