Bug Description

with the recent issues where netplan could not unbind some drivers the idea came up that it might make sense to actually have netplan read a config file with a list of drivers that do not support unbind so that SoC vendors that create a new UbuntuCore image do not have to wait for a new netplan release (and new core snap) but can add their unbindable platform device themselves to a list that netplan will then ignore.

Hi!

(I'm going through and trying to clean up some old bugs, so apologies if this is a bit out of the blue.)

There's some work in progress to do this. I originally had a PR that would make it configurable but cyphermox has a WIP commit that will just tear out the replugging entirely: https://github.com/CanonicalLtd/netplan/commit/80c56e9f5dfcbd46d65e0bff7a7d5de46f080fe1

So there has been some thought on this and stuff will eventually happen :)

Regards,
Daniel
