Subject[net-next RFC PATCH 5/7] tuntap: add ioctls to attach or detach a file form tap device
From
Date
This patch adds userspace interface for multi-queue based
tap device. Two new ioctls were added. The first is
TUNATTACHQUEUE which is used to attach an opened file
descriptor to an existed tap device. Another is
TUNDETACHQUEUE which is used to detach an file from an
existed tap device, and this file could be re-attach to the
tap device as a queue again.

After those ioctls were added, userspace can create a
multiqueue tap device by open /dev/net/tap and call
TUNSETIFF, then it could easily control the number of queues
through TUNATTACHQUEUE and TUNDETACHQUEUE.
