Well, I'm not sure if we want to have _that_ many trigger. Trigger
interface is going to become.. "interesting".

We have 4K limit on total number of triggers. We use rather strange
interface to select trigger.

I know this is not your fault, but if you have a space or "[]" in
netdev names, confusing things will happen.

I believe we should have triggers "net-rx, net-tx" and it should have
parameter "which device it acts on".
