Subject[PATCH net-next v4 01/22] rtnetlink: provide permanent hardware address in RTM_NEWLINK
Date
Permanent hardware address of a network device was traditionally provided
via ethtool ioctl interface but as Jiri Pirko pointed out in a review of
ethtool netlink interface, rtnetlink is much more suitable for it so let's
add it to the RTM_NEWLINK message.

As permanent address is not modifiable, reject userspace requests
containing IFLA_PERM_ADDRESS attribute.

Note: we already provide permanent hardware address for bond slaves;
unfortunately we cannot drop that attribute for backward compatibility
reasons.
