I see. That's quite something to think about for Köry. In its defense,
I also agree that this idea seems the most orthogonal to everything else
that we have or may want to add in the future, and is not likely to
become obsoleted by some other mechanism that can achieve the same
thing, but in a more flexible way. It's just that it's quite the task.

I sense it may be time to dust off and submit the rest of my
ndo_hwtstamp_get()/ ndo_hwtstamp_set() conversions before a netlink
conversion of SIOCGHWTSTAMP/SIOCSHWTSTAMP could even take place...
