[PATCH net-next] net: add netlink_ext_ack support to rtnl_link_ops

Matthias Schiffer mschiffer at universe-factory.net
Sat Jun 24 11:45:24 UTC 2017


The following functions are extended with a netlink_ext_ack argument to
allow extended error reporting:

* validate
* newlink
* changelink
* slave_validate
* slave_changelink

Checkpatch is unhappy about the long lines in include/net/rtnetlink.h, but
I guess it's as readable as it gets...

Most work was done by the following Coccinelle snippet, the original
version of which was provided by Johannes Berg:
