Subject[PATCH v8 00/4] Provide netdev naming-policy via sysfs
Date
Resending only the core changes. These patches alone would already be
very useful to udev. The remaning ones can be reviewed and applied
individually later.

See patch 1 for details.

Cheers,

Tom

Changes since v7:
- drop non-core changes
Changes since v6:
- change alloc_netdev to take the name assign type as an argument.
- introduce an internal assign type NET_NAME_UNKNOWN, which makes
it simpler to split up the patches, but may eventually be dropped.
- introduce a new assign type NET_NAME_PREDICTABLE to indicate to
userspace that the kernel-assigned names are well-behaved.

Tom Gundersen (4):
net: add name_assign_type netdev attribute
net: set name assign type for renamed devices
net: set name_assign_type in alloc_netdev()
net: rtnetlink - make create_link take name_assign_type
