We see these as two different categories of notifications, and prefer
the greater flexibility a mechanism independent of uevents would
provide. The team has discussed several alternatives over the years but
didn't make a decision as we've not yet reached a point where we're
straining the existing mechanism too far.

So, no changes need to be made? I'm confused here, who is wanting this

Hehe, Alasdair and I are both RH but working on different projects. We're not the Borg :)

My project *would* like this added sooner, so I'll work on a revised patchset that uses netlink instead of uevents, and will also work on a revision to uevents.txt that talks about KOBJ_CHANGE and when it should and should not be used, as described by agk, to help out the next person.
