Subject: Network activity LED trigger

Hi All,

I have been talking a bit with Richard, who is the LED API maintainer, and a 
LED trigger based on network activity would be something great.

There are somethings that concern the network stack :

- should we specify if the network driver is allowed to contribute to
the LED activity, just like it is done for random generation, at compile time

- I would like to trigger the LED based on one or several network
interfaces, maybe specify via sysfs which interface triggers which LED,
and also maybe differentiate the layer-2 activity from the layer-3
activity for instance

- A led driver could by default be bound to a network driver, or an interface 
name

As it could be very intrusive in the network stack, you might want to specify 
a bit more how you imagine a network activity trigger.

Thanks
