register_netdev — register a network device
|struct net_device * dev|
Take a completed network device structure and add it to the kernel
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.
This is a wrapper around register_netdevice that takes the rtnl semaphore and expands the device name if you passed a format string to alloc_netdev.
