Roopa, did you mean eth1 as the new device or did you mean just in
general config requiring a device to be specified or did you mean a new
cpu netdev being needed? I couldnt tell from the patch.
You just have to have some netdev to use to funnel the IFE headered
sample skbs to userspace. A dummy or a tap.
So with nflog you get basically a backend using a netlink socket
but in your case you will redirect to tuntap for the case of local
sflow but some other device for remote? I am assuming using dummy
would require a packet socket as means of retrieving the data.
If you take the structuring of the metadata that nflog uses it should
be easy to transpose.
To Roopa's point, however: Would it not make sense to support nflog
