The following commit has been merged in the master branch:
commit 351638e7deeed2ec8ce451b53d33921b3da68f83
Author: Jiri Pirko <jiri at resnulli.us>
Date:   Tue May 28 01:30:21 2013 +0000

    net: pass info struct via netdevice notifier
    
    So far, only net_device * could be passed along with netdevice notifier
    event. This patch provides a possibility to pass custom structure
    able to provide info that event listener needs to know.
    
    Signed-off-by: Jiri Pirko <jiri at resnulli.us>
    
    v2->v3: fix typo on simeth
    	shortened dev_getter
    	shortened notifier_info struct name
    v1->v2: fix notifier_call parameter in call_netdevice_notifier()
