Hmm, I am not too fond of having such subsystem-specific complexity in

Hmm, isn't this something that could be fixed in the kernel in a
generic way? Introduce a new generic sysfs attr in a block device that
indicates that some block device involves networking? Similar to the
"rotational" flag?

I mean, I am not convinced that systemd should be the place where this
is abstracted, I'd much rather see the kernel do this for us, and us
simply making use of the information.
