Subject: [Patch net-next 0/3] net: forbid net devices named "all" "default" or "config"

/proc/sys/net/ipv[46]/conf/<dev> could conflict with
/proc/sys/net/ipv[46]/conf/(all|default). And /proc/net/vlan/<dev>
could conflict with /proc/net/vlan/config. Besides kernel warnings,
undefined behavior such as duplicated proc files also appears, therefore
we should forbid these names.

Cong Wang (3):
  ipv4: fail early when creating netdev named all or default
  ipv6: fail early when creating netdev named all or default
  vlan: fail early when creating netdev named config
