SubjectRe: [PATCH updated] net: add ability to clear per-interface network statistics via procfs
From

We saw your initial patch posting, you don't need to send this
again.

netdev added to CC:

> From: James Cammarata <jimi@sngx.net>
>
> Added the ability to write to /proc/net/dev in order to clear the interface counters for a given interface. The ability to zero out counters (especially the error counters) is extremely useful when troubleshooting interface issues. Now diffed against 2.6.25.4, and added some sanity checking.

> Syntax:
> echo 'net clear-stats ifdev' > /proc/net/dev
> Where "ifdev" is the device name you wish to clear.

> This code is based mainly on the code found in drivers/scsi/scsi_proc.c
