[PATCH] vlan: set sysfs device_type to 'vlan'

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

Sets the sysfs device_type to 'vlan' for udev. This makes it easier for
applications that query network information via udev to identify vlans
instead of using strrchr().

The intent was to match other virtual network types such as bridges.
