This is sort of what I had originally, so I should be able to change
it to do this quite easily. I didn't like the earlier suggestion of
using existing RTM_xxxLINK with RTM_xxxIFACE (since it was dev generic),
but having a new interface RTM_xxxIFACE sounds good to me.

Thanks,

Hello!


My suggestion is:
- create L3 per-interface RTM, say, RTM_xxxIFACE.
- provide inet_device / inet6_dev things via this RTM.
   e.g. per-interface statistics, flags etc.


I agree for all 100%. I understand your attitude now.
