    Subject[RFC 0/2] macvtap, second try
    Date
    I did not get this ready for the merge window, but people asked what
    the status of this is so I'm posting it now to solicit feedback.

    The first patch just adds some hooks into macvlan.c and is less
    invasive than the previous version. That part should be fine
    and I'd like this to get merged into macvlan for 2.6.33 if people
    agree that the approach is right.

    The second patch adds the driver using it and is not ready for
    integration unfortunately, but maybe it could get into staging
    anyway. Please look at that patch carefully and provide feedback.
