Subject: [PATCH v7 00/33] Provide netdev naming-policy via sysfs

This picks up the patch series where David Herrmann left off, incorporating
the feedback from David Miller.

Overview (see Patch 1 for more details):

Patch 1: Introduce the enums, documentation and userspace API
Patch 2: Hook up with device renaming
Patch 3: change the alloc_netdev*() API to take the name_assign_type

The following patches actually converts to the correct name assign type,
these can be applied in any order, and we could even delay some/all
to a subsequent release if that makes things simpler.

Patch 4-6: convert the trivial cases.
Patch 7-9: convert the netlink interfaces to pass down the assign type
Patch 10-33: convert the remaining drivers one-by-one

Cheers,

Tom

Changes since v6:
 - change alloc_netdev to take the name assign type as an argument.
 - introduce an internal assign type NET_NAME_UNKNOWN, which makes
   it simpler to split up the patches, but may eventually be dropped.
 - introduce a new assign type NET_NAME_PREDICTABLE to indicate to
   userspace that the kernel-assigned names are well-behaved.

Tom Gundersen (33):
  net: add name_assign_type netdev attribute
  net: set name assign type for renamed devices
  net: set name_assign_type in alloc_netdev()
  net: set name assign type for names assigned using a static template
  net: set name assign type for names assigned using a static string
  net: set name assign type for names passed directly from userspace
  net: rtnetlink - make create_link take name_assign_type
  net: nl80211 - make rdev_add_virtual_intf take name_assign_type
