No, I don't think there is such a thing. RX side should be relatively
simple (i.e., less than 20 lines or so of code) to test by just
initializing eloop and registering l2_packet handler for, say, IP
packets. Sending would not require much more if the goal is to just see
that something goes out can be seen with a sniffer from an external

This kind of test tool would fit in quite well with testing another area,
i.e., the driver interface code. Adding simple test programs for both
interfaces would sound like a useful addition..
