net: pass info struct via netdevice notifier
So far, only net_device * could be passed along with netdevice notifier event. This patch provides a possibility to pass custom structure able to provide info that event listener needs to know. Signed-off-by: Jiri Pirko <jiri@resnulli.us> v2->v3: fix typo on simeth shortened dev_getter shortened notifier_info struct name v1->v2: fix notifier_call parameter in call_netdevice_notifier() Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
