This very small patch uses iproute2's ip(8) tool to display link statistics in 
It offers much more detail then ifconfig e.g. an additional 4 stat fields per 
direction (RX and TX).
In my opinion it's also easier to read.

e.g. Notice how eth4 has instances of dropped, overrun, and misses for packets 
in the above output.

$ ip -s -s link show eth4
state UP qlen 1000
    link/ether 9c:8e:99:53:e3:30 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    RX: bytes  packets  errors  dropped overrun mcast
