Subject[PATCH v3 3/5] mdev: Expose mdev alias in sysfs tree
Date
Expose the optional alias for an mdev device as a sysfs attribute.
This way, userspace tools such as udev may make use of the alias, for
example to create a netdevice name for the mdev.

Updated documentation for optional read only sysfs attribute.

Signed-off-by: Parav Pandit <parav@mellanox.com>

Changelog:
v2->v3:
