These patches fix some netdev registration problems discovered with
the venet macvlan driver. The newline patch is trivial. The other
patch addresses several problems with registration. Worth noting
are the problems registering a netdevice that has previously been
unregistered. This doesn't seem work and I was wondering if this
is expected behavior in net/core(see patch 2/2 for a description).
