I pointed out the reason why I need it: to add an attribute: /sys/class/net/<interface>/<new_attribute>. Others might want to do this too.
If you want to look more detailed what I'm trying to accomplish you could check: http://seclists.org/lists/linux-kernel/2004/Oct/1373.html http://seclists.org/lists/linux-kernel/2004/Sep/8685.html http://lists.netfilter.org/pipermail/netfilter-devel/2004-August/016342.html
Of course the ideal way to do this would be adding a timer to net_device and modifying net-sysfs.c. But I don't think that is going to happen so I want to do as unintrusive implementation as possible. And currently I think it'd be adding an interface to network class device which creates the related attribute.
