I checked by searching for calls to rt_ifmsg.

BSD apparently has a different API for link-detect that supports three
states: up, down, and unknown. The flag is inside the ifm_data field
of RTM_IFINFO messages along with the statistics. BSD also has
IFF_RUNNING, but uses it for something different, I'm not sure what.
