Subject: RE: [PATCH 1/2][RFC] Update net core to use devres.

Please look at the multiqueue network code that is in 2.6.23.  It
creates alloc_netdev_mq() for multiqueue network device drivers.  If you
want to add this devres feature (which based on the threads, might be
difficult), please make sure you comprehend the multiqueue features.

Thanks,
