Description

The Oxide Packet Transformation Engine (OPTE) is an open-source suite of software for implementing software-defined networking topologies with a particular focus on the Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) model. A portion of this software resides as a loadable illumos kernel module and provides a new datalink class, xde. There is not presently a facility for out-of-gate modules to register a new datalink class with the system, so in this change we wish to add the bare minimum set of hooks so that the (Rust-based) xde driver can continue to be developed out-of-gate for now.
