The udev node device driver relies on the "device" symlink in sysfs to
populate the node device's parent property.  Loopback, vlan and bridge
network interfaces don't have a real hardware parent but could be useful
to include as node devices anyway (and the hal node device driver does
include them).

This patch allows the udev node device driver to include network
interfaces lacking a "device" symlink as node devices, and sets the
parent property to "computer".

Where is udev_device_get_syspath declared?  I'm assuming it's generated,
since 'git grep' didn't find it.  The only concern I have is whether it
sanely reacts to a NULL argument, but since I couldn't find it, I'm not
sure.  If it gracefully returns NULL on a NULL argument, then...
