Emn, isn't it a matter of suspending the interface? I think, most network 
adapters, at least under earlier (2.4) kernel versions, had there 
interfaces enabled by default. And disabling it would be done by

ifconfig ... down
echo [23] > /sys/devices/.../power/state

or by whatever means that's going to replace it?
