Indeed. And that gives you, in one hand, the destination address of
the datagram, and in the other hand, a whitelist of interface labels.
The only way to compare the two is to enumerate all the interfaces
using the netlink interface, which gives you all the addresses of each
interface and their associated labels. If the interface set and
configuration can change arbitrarily, you need to do that for every
datagram, which gets expensive.
