Commit Message

Ferruh Yigit Feb. 12, 2016, 1:45 p.m. UTC
This kernel module is based on KNI module, but this one is stripped
version of it and only for control messages, no data transfer
functionality provided.

This Linux kernel module helps userspace application create virtual
interfaces and when a control command issued into that virtual
interface, module pushes the command to the userspace and gets the
response back for the caller application.

The Linux tools like ethtool/ifconfig/ip can be used on virtual
interfaces but not ones for related data, like tcpdump.

In long term this patch intends to replace the KNI and KNI will be
depreciated.

Signed-off-by: Ferruh Yigit <ferruh.yigit@intel.com>

v2:
* Use rtnetlink to create interfaces
* fix ethtool get/set eeprom
* Remove commented out code
