Subject[PATCHv6 0/7] Refactor macvtap to re-use tap functionality by other virtual intefaces
Date
Tap character devices can be implemented on other virtual interfaces like
ipvlan, similar to macvtap. Source code for tap functionality in macvtap
can be re-used for this purpose.

This patch series splits macvtap source into two modules, macvtap and tap.
This patch series also includes a patch for implementing tap character
device driver based on the IP-VLAN network interface, called ipvtap.

These patches are tested on x86 platform.

Sainath Grandhi (7):
tap: Refactoring macvtap.c
tap: Renaming tap related APIs, data structures, macros
tap: Tap character device creation/destroy API
tap: Abstract type of virtual interface from tap implementation
tap: Extending tap device create/destroy APIs
tap: tap as an independent module
ipvtap: IP-VLAN based tap driver
