[Coco] IP packets on my coco

Ok. This weekend I tore the up-to-date uIP tcp/ip stack out of contiki.
It's nearly the same as the old uIP.   I modified my lwwire server connect
up a TAP interface, rather TUN.  TAP basically gets and puts ethernet
frames, rather than TUN, which works with straight IP packets.   So I guess
my CoCo has a MAC address now.   A TAP interface takes data in nearly the
same format (eth frames) as Jim's prototype cs8900a NIC card.  I hope this
means it will be easy(er) to test the real hardware.
