REGISTER_NETDEVICE(9)					      Network device support					     REGISTER_NETDEVICE(9)

NAME
register_netdevice - register a network device SYNOPSIS
int register_netdevice(struct net_device * dev); ARGUMENTS
dev device to register DESCRIPTION
Take a completed network device structure and add it to the kernel interfaces. A NETDEV_REGISTER message is sent to the netdev notifier chain. 0 is returned on success. A negative errno code is returned on a failure to set up the device, or if the name is a duplicate. Callers must hold the rtnl semaphore. You may want register_netdev instead of this. BUGS
The locking appears insufficient to guarantee two parallel registers will not get the same name. COPYRIGHT
