No one can see these events, because a network namespace can not be
destroyed, if it has sockets.

Unlike other devices, uevent-s for network devices are generated
only inside their network namespaces. They are filtered in
kobj_bcast_filter()

My experiments shows that net namespaces are destroyed more 30% faster
with this optimization.

Here is a perf output for destroying network namespaces without this
patch.

                        + 12.96% kobject_put
                     - 12.72% net_rx_queue_update_kobjects
                          kobject_put
                        - kobject_release
                           + 12.69% kobject_uevent
                  + 0.80% call_netdevice_notifiers_info
         + 19.57% nfsd_exit_net
         + 11.15% tcp_net_metrics_exit
         + 8.25% rpcsec_gss_exit_net

It's very critical to optimize the exit path for network namespaces,
because they are destroyed under net_mutex and many namespaces can be
destroyed for one iteration.

v2: use dev_set_uevent_suppress()

Applied to net-next, thanks.
