Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next v2] net-sysfs: expose number of carrier on/off changes

Hi all,

As Eric mentioned, this is a per-link counter. I am not sure an
aggregate stat would be as useful.

As suggested by Florian, I'm planning to add a doc. As far as I can
tell, I think it goes beyond just documenting this new counter: I
believe sysfs-class-net needs to be added as a whole.

Stephen: I have a patch for iproute2, I was planning to send it after
we're done with this one, unless you want it now. Also, should I
document this IFLA thing, where would be best?
