I think dropping register_gifconf (which seems like a nice cleanup!)
needs to be a separate prep patch to not make this too confusing.

Does this actually compile as-is?  It adds a second definition of
compat_ifconf but removes the still used compat_if_settings?

Maybe it would be a better idea to add a prep patch that makes as much
as possible of compat.h available unconditionally instead of all these
little moves.
