I think that the discussion steered too much towards networking related
topics, while this ioctl doesn't have much to do with networking.
It's just an ioctl for our mc-bus bus driver that is used to manage the
devices on this bus through userspace tools.
In addition, I'd drop any mention of our reference user space app
(restool) to emphasize that this ioctl is not added just for a
particular user space app. I think Stuart also mentioned this.

Thanks & Best Regards, Laurentiu
