[PATCH] bridge: notify applications if address of bridge device changes

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

The mac address of the bridge device may be changed when a new interface
is added to the bridge. If this happens, then the bridge needs to call
the network notifiers to tickle any other systems that care. Since bridge
can be a module, this also means exporting the notifier function.
