pcap_lookupdev() returns a pointer to a string giving the name of a
network device suitable for use with pcap_create() and
pcap_activate(), or with pcap_open_live(), and with pcap_lookupnet().
If there is an error, NULL is returned and errbuf is filled in with
an appropriate error message. errbuf is assumed to be able to hold
at least PCAP_ERRBUF_SIZE chars.
