Dave, it would be really great if you stick with the same email subject
when you declare net-next closed. I was looking for "CLOSED" but now the
subject is "no new feature patches please" which I missed.

Subject like "*net-next is CLOSED*" or some other constant nicely
visible string would avoid people like me miss this and people like you
and Nicolas to remind me :)

There is none atm. But anyway, the struct field name should be generic,
cause this is not specific to af_packet. Anybody might want to pass a
"priv".
