I think the tunnel drivers should return the name of the
device the tunnel add created. Currently the tunnel_lookup
functions copy the name into the stack var in the ioctl
function but the ioctl copies the parm from the tunnel

Hmmm, net/ipv6/sit.c already has the version you propose. :-)))
Which one is correct?

Alexey, what do you think?

Franks a lot,
