SIOCSIFBRDADDR is the flag to access the ifreq_broadaddr to change the 
broadcast adress of the NIC using ioctl. check it out here

thats the problem... it gives no error, but it doesn't changes the 
adress. i've tried the code in linux and it changes the broadcast adress 
but in ifconfig in Fiasco, it doesn't. My question is if it is 
implemented or not in the ioctl?
