[NETNS]: The net-subsys IDs generator.
To make some per-net generic pointers, we need some way to address them, i.e. - IDs. This is simple IDA-based IDs generator for pernet subsystems. Addressing questions about potential checkpoint/restart problems: these IDs are "lite-offsets" within the net structure and are by no means supposed to be exported to the userspace. Since it will be used in the nearest future by devices only (tun, vlan, tunnels, bridge, etc), I make it resemble the functionality of register_pernet_device(). The new ids is stored in the *id pointer _before_ calling the init callback to make this id available in this callback. Signed-off-by: Pavel Emelyanov <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
