Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/2] net: filter: split eBPF interpreter out of core networking

Hi David,

I believe my recent set of RFC/patches [1] provided good visibility on where
I would like to take eBPF subsystem. These two trivial patches is a first step
in that direction:
patch 1 - mechanical split of eBPF interpreter out of filter.c
patch 2 - nominate myself as a maintainer for eBPF core pieces
In the foreseeable future eBPF patches will be going through net-next,
so put netdev as a primary mailing list

[1] git:// master
