Will the dummy driver in the kernel do what you need?
This is essentially a bit-bucket device (i.e. traffic you send to
this device is consigned into oblivion) with a configurable IP
address. It is most commonly used in order to make your currently
inactive SLIP address seem like a real address for local programs.
If you use SLIP or PPP, you might want to say Y here. Since this
thing often comes in handy, the default is Y. It won't enlarge your
kernel either. What a deal. Read about it in the Network
Administrator's Guide, available from

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module
will be called dummy. If you want to use more than one dummy
device at a time, you need to compile this driver as a module.
Instead of 'dummy', the devices will then be called 'dummy0',
'dummy1' etc.
