pcap_can_set_rfmon() returns 0 if monitor mode could not be set,
1 if monitor mode could be set, and a negative value on error. A
negative return value indicates what error condition occurred.
The possible error values are:
The capture source specified when the handle was created
The process doesn't have permission to check whether
monitor mode could be supported.
The capture handle has already been activated.
Another error occurred. pcap_geterr(3PCAP) or
pcap_perror(3PCAP) may be called with p as an argument to
fetch or display a message describing the error.
Additional error codes may be added in the future; a program
should check for 0, 1, and negative, return codes, and treat all
negative return codes as errors. pcap_statustostr(3PCAP) can be
called, with a warning or error code as an argument, to fetch a
message describing the warning or error code.
