netns: Coexist with the sysfs limitations v2
To make testing of the network namespace simpler allow the network namespace code and the sysfs code to be compiled and run at the same time. To do this only virtual devices are allowed in the additional network namespaces and those virtual devices are not placed in the kobject tree. Since virtual devices don't actually do anything interesting hardware wise that needs device management there should be no loss in keeping them out of the kobject tree and by implication sysfs. The gain in ease of testing and code coverage should be significant. Changelog: v2: As pointed out by Benjamin Thery it only makes sense to call device_rename in the initial network namespace for now. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
