[PATCH] lockdep: annotate vlan net device as being a special class
Arjan van de Ven [Mon, 3 Jul 2006 07:25:33 +0000 (00:25 -0700)]
vlan network devices have devices nesting below it, and are a special
"super class" of normal network devices; split their locks off into a
separate class since they always nest.

[deweerdt@free.fr: fix possible null-pointer deref]
