+When run on HiperSockets Bridge Capable Port hardware with host address
+notifications enabled, a udev event with ACTION=CHANGE is emitted.
+It is emitted on behalf of the corresponding ccwgroup device when a host
+or a VLAN is registered or unregistered on the network served by the device.
+The event has the following attributes:
+BRIDGEDHOST={reset|register|deregister|abort} - host address
+ notifications are started afresh, a new host or VLAN is registered or
+ deregistered on the Bridge Port HiperSockets channel, or address
+ notifications are aborted.
+VLAN=numeric-vlan-id - VLAN ID on which the event occurred. Not included
+ if no VLAN is involved in the event.
+MAC=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx - MAC address of the host that is being registered
+ or deregistered from the HiperSockets channel. Not reported if the
+ event reports the creation or destruction of a VLAN.
+NTOK_BUSID=x.y.zzzz - device bus ID (CSSID, SSID and device number).
+NTOK_IID=xx - device IID.
+NTOK_CHPID=xx - device CHPID.
+NTOK_CHID=xxxx - device channel ID.
+Note that the NTOK_* attributes refer to devices other than the one
+connected to the system on which the OS is running.
