Subject: [PATCH] net:  Report dev->promiscuity in netlink reports.

From: Ben Greear <greearb@...delatech.com>

The standard ways of probing a device's promiscuity
(ifi_flags, for instance) does not report the actual
state of the device.  This patch adds dev->promiscuity
to the netlink netdevice report so that users can know
for certain if the device is acting PROMISC or not.
