...and it's been in the tree for quite a while too. It's a shame
people aren't taking advantage of it's obvious utility...
I'd like to hear what others believe belong in this new netlink family.
The two events that come to mind for this family (or netdev notified if
that's more appropriate) are:
1) device initialization failures,
2) events that drive load balancing software. Right now if we need to
throttle the card, we don't send events up to indicate we have reached
Possibly the first might belong in the netdev notified family, and the
second in the netlink family, since you might want to present more than
a two state (success/failure.. or just failure in this case) result.
