Subject[PATCH 2/5] vmbus: suppress uevents for hv_sock devices
Date
From: Dexuan Cui <decui@microsoft.com>

hv_sock driver is automatically loaded when an application creates an
AF_VSOCK socket, so we don't really need to trigger uevents to the user
space udevd.

And hv_sock devices can appear and disappear frequency, e.g. 100 per
second, so triggering the udevents can cause a high cpu utilization of
udevd, e.g. 30% on a 2-cpu virtual machine. So let's suppress the
uevents to avoid this.
