 * There are three possible ways of reading packets from pcap descriptor:
 *  do select() on descriptor -> this one is of course the best, but 
 *              there are systems that don't support this like WIN32
 *          This works perfectly for Linux.
 *  do select() but whith some hacks -> this one is hack for older bsd
 *          systems, Descriptor *must* be set in nonblocking mode.
 *  never do select() -> this one is for WIN32 and other systems that
 *          return descriptor -1 from pcap_get_selectable_fd()
 *          In this case descriptor *must* be set in nonblocking mode.
 *          If that fails than we can't do any sniffing from that box.
 * In all cases we try to set descriptor to non-blocking mode.
 * */

// Returns whether the system supports pcap_get_selectable_fd() properly
#if !defined(WIN32)

 * Note that on most versions of most BSDs (including Mac OS X) select() and poll() do not work 
 * correctly on BPF devices; pcap_get_selectable_fd() will return a file descriptor on most of those 
 * versions (the exceptions being FreeBSD 4.3 and 4.4), a simple select() or poll() will 
 * not return even after a timeout specified in pcap_open_live() expires. To work around 
 * this, an application that uses select() or poll() to wait for packets to arrive must put 
 * the pcap_t in non-blocking mode, and must arrange that the select() or poll() have a timeout 
 * less than or equal to the timeout specified in pcap_open_live(), and must try to read packets 
 * after that timeout expires, regardless of whether select() or poll() indicated that the file 
 * descriptor for the pcap_t is ready to be read or not. (That workaround will not work in 
 * FreeBSD 4.3 and later; however, in FreeBSD 4.6 and later, select() and poll() work correctly 
 * on BPF devices, so the workaround isn't necessary, although it does no harm.)

// Well, now select() is not receiving any pcap events on MACOSX, but maybe it will someday :)
// in both cases. It never hurts to enable this feature. It just has performance penalty.  

// Returns whether the packet receive time value obtained from libpcap
// (and thus by readip_pcap()) should be considered valid.  When
// invalid (Windows and Amiga), readip_pcap returns the time you called it.
