dmitry pervushin - April 21, 2013, 9:53 a.m.
Send notifications when the label becomes active after an idle period.
Send netlink message notifications in addition to sysfs notifications.
Using a uevent with
      subsystem=xt_idletimer
      INTERFACE=...
      STATE={active,inactive}

This is backport from common android-3.0
commit: beb914e987cbbd368988d2b94a6661cb907c4d5a
with uevent support instead of a new netlink message type.

Hi Dmitry,

You got some feedback for this patch:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/2333851/

This patch still seem not to address some spots I already mention.

Please, have a look at my previous email and let me know if you have
any question.

Thanks.
