Wintun doesn't have its own I/O device. Rather, it taps on existing
Windows-provided NDIS device. Sending TAP-Windows6 IOCTL requests to it
is risky, as TAP-Windows6 is using one of the well-known device types
(FILE_DEVICE_UNKNOWN) with function IDs as 1, 2, 3 etc. raising a chance
of collision as NDIS might react to one of these IOCTLs.

Sorry for not mentioning it earlier.

There is already check in forward.c:

    if (tuntap_defined(c->c1.tuntap))

Same goes for tap_win_getinfo in sig.c:

    if (tuntap_defined(c->c1.tuntap))
        status_printf(so, "TAP-WIN32 driver status,\"%s\"",
                      tap_win_getinfo(c->c1.tuntap, &gc));

There is one place where that check is missing, error.c:

    #elif defined(_WIN32)
        /* get possible driver error from TAP-Windows driver */
        extended_msg = tap_win_getinfo(tt, &gc);

There is no need to call tuntap_defined() twice, so either
we remove it from calling code or from tun_* methods.
For the sake of consistency I propose to add it to error.c
and remove from tun_* methods, which would just check for !tt->wintun.
