I'm porting a Golang-based program  to Android11+ (API level 30)
and I've faced a problem,as the getifaddrs function is not available
for apps and other restrictions.
From Android developer documentation :
> In addition, non-privileged apps can't access the device's MAC address; only network interfaces with an IP address are visible. This impacts the getifaddrs() and NetworkInterface.getHardwareAddress() methods, as well as sending RTM_GETLINK Netlink messages.
> The following is a list of the ways that apps are affected by this change:
> NetworkInterface.getHardwareAddress() returns null for every interface.
> Apps cannot use the bind() function on NETLINK_ROUTE sockets.
> The ip command does not return information about interfaces.
> Apps cannot send RTM_GETLINK messages.
I came up with a workaround , and now my app works OK.
