[PATCH] net: swich device attribute creation to default attrs

Recent udev versions don't longer cover bad sysfs timing with built-in
logic. Explicit rules are required to do that. For net devices, the
following is needed:
  ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="net", WAIT_FOR_SYSFS="address"
to handle access to net device properties from an event handler without

This patch changes the main net attributes to be created by the driver
core, which is done _before_ the event is sent out and will not require
the stat() loop of the WAIT_FOR_SYSFS key.
