Subject[PATCH net-next v4 09/22] ethtool: implement EVENT notifications
Date
Three types of netlink notifications are introduced:

- ETHA_EVENT_NEWDEV to notify about newly registered network devices
- ETHA_EVENT_DELDEV to notify about unregistered network devices
- ETHA_EVENT_RENAMEDEV to notify about renamed network device

The notifications are triggered by NETDEV_REGISTER, NETDEV_UNREGISTER and
NETDEV_CHANGENAME notifiers.

These notifications are intended for applications and daemons monitoring
ethtool events to allow updating the list of existing devices without
having to open another socket for rtnetlink.

List of message types
---------------------

+ ETHNL_CMD_EVENT notification only
+
All constants use ETHNL_CMD_ prefix, usually followed by "GET", "SET" or "ACT"
to indicate the type.

@@ -137,9 +139,34 @@ messages marked as "response only" in the table above. "Get" messages with
NLM_F_DUMP flags and no device identification dump the information for all
devices supporting the request.

+Type ETHNL_CMD_EVENT is special, these messages are never used in userspace
+requests or kernel replies. They are only sent by kernel to sockets listening
+to "monitor" multicast group to inform userspace about certain events.
+
Later sections describe the format and semantics of these request messages.


+EVENT
+-----
+
+EVENT messages are only used in kernel multicast notifications. Atributes
+correspond to specific event types, the same type can appear multiple times.
+
+ ETHA_EVENT_NEWDEV (nested) new device was registered
+ ETHA_NEWDEV_DEV (nested) new device
+ ETHA_EVENT_DELDEV (nested) device was unregistered
+ ETHA_DELDEV_DEV (nested) removed device
+ ETHA_EVENT_RENAMEDEV (nested) device was renamed
+ ETHA_RENAMEDEV_DEV (nested) renamed device
+
+For ETHA_EVENT_RENAMEDEV, the name ETHA_RENAME_DEV/ETHA_DEV_NAME is the new
+name after the rename.
+
+Userspace application must expect multiple events to be present in one message
+and also multiple events of the same type (e.g. two or more newly registered
+devices).
