To be more clear, in the general case your interface group might
consist of interfaces with completely different link layer types.
(pflog0 and fxp1 and tun0 for instance) they can not be combined
into the same bpf descriptor and trying to support it through
hacks in tcpdump itself would be quite ugly.
