Introduce devlink infrastructure
Introduce devlink infrastructure for drivers to register and expose to userspace via generic Netlink interface. There are two basic objects defined: devlink - one instance for every "parent device", for example switch ASIC devlink port - one instance for every physical port of the device. This initial portion implements basic get/dump of objects to userspace. Also, port splitter and port type setting is implemented. Signed-off-by: Jiri Pirko <jiri@mellanox.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
