net-sysfs: expose number of carrier on/off changes
This allows to monitor carrier on/off transitions and detect link flapping issues: - new /sys/class/net/X/carrier_changes - new rtnetlink IFLA_CARRIER_CHANGES (getlink) Tested: - grep . /sys/class/net/*/carrier_changes + ip link set dev X down/up + plug/unplug cable - updated iproute2: prints IFLA_CARRIER_CHANGES - iproute2 20121211-2 (debian): unchanged behavior Signed-off-by: David Decotigny <decot@googlers.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
