If you have serial line IP compiled into your kernel it creates a new network
This interface does not have an address. DefineSelf in the xorg source code
requires that network interfaces that are valid have a non-null address field.
This leads to a segfault because ConvertAddr attempts to dereference that pointer.
Adding a check to see if the ifr->ifa_addr is null fixed the bug.

fixes the bug in access.c
actually need to check that before the decnet check, otherwise looks good to me.
