For clarity this patch set addresses an issue when renaming network
devices which have vlans.  Previously we were not renaming all of the
sysfs files on device name change leading to name collissions in sysfs
and general failures.

The first _two_ patches here seem to be cherry-picks and are
foundational, the final patch is the meat of the change.
