Hehe, Alasdair and I are both RH but working on different projects.
We're not the Borg :)

My project *would* like this added sooner, so I'll work on a revised
patchset that uses netlink instead of uevents, and will also work on a
revision to uevents.txt that talks about KOBJ_CHANGE and when it should
and should not be used, as described by agk, to help out the next person.

Thanks -- Regards -- Andy
