In the previous patch I added NETDEV_ENSLAVE, now
we can notify netconsole when adding a device to a bridge too.

By the way, s/netdev_bonding_change/call_netdevice_notifiers/ in
bond_main.c, since this is not bonding specific.

Is there a usage for this? What listens for this notification?

Never mind it was in the first patch which you did not send.
You should always put a number on group of patches and send
to all parties.

Ah, sorry, my script simply run to
get the Cc list, so bridge list was not in included in
the first patch.

Also, sending networking patches to LKML is a waste of bandwidth
please don't bother.

Ok, will fix my script.
