Subject: [PATCH 14/15] netns: Enable tagging for net_class directories in sysfs


The problem.  Network devices show up in sysfs and with the network
namespace active multiple devices with the same name can show up in
the same directory, ouch!

To avoid that problem and allow existing applications in network namespaces
to see the same interface that is currently presented in sysfs, this
patch enables the tagging directory support in sysfs.

By using the network namespace pointers as tags to separate out the
the sysfs directory entries we ensure that we don't have conflicts
in the directories and applications only see a limited set of
the network devices.
