Quick question: My subject had "net:" in it. Should it have had "bpf:" in
the subject instead?

If yes, would this warrant another version of this patch or resending it
with a different subject?

It felt right to put net: there as it felt like I was working with
networking code that was simply calling bpf code but I'm not exactly
sure of that anymore.

This is my first kernel patch that has actually gone anywhere and
I'm just looking for some feedback as I couldn't find much good
documentation on that describes how I should be doing
