 * Data Structures:
 *   struct nlmsghdr			netlink message header
 *
 * Message Construction:
 *   nlmsg_new()			create a new netlink message
 *   nlmsg_put()			add a netlink message to an skb
 *   nlmsg_put_answer()			callback based nlmsg_put()
 *   nlmsg_end()			finalize netlink message
 *   nlmsg_get_pos()			return current position in message
 *   nlmsg_trim()			trim part of message
 *   nlmsg_cancel()			cancel message construction
 *   nlmsg_free()			free a netlink message
 *
 * Message Sending:
 *   nlmsg_multicast()			multicast message to several groups
 *   nlmsg_unicast()			unicast a message to a single socket
 *   nlmsg_notify()			send notification message
 *
 * Message Length Calculations:
 *   nlmsg_msg_size(payload)		length of message w/o padding
 *   nlmsg_total_size(payload)		length of message w/ padding
 *   nlmsg_padlen(payload)		length of padding at tail
 *
 * Message Payload Access:

 *   nlmsg_len(nlh)			length of message payload
 *   nlmsg_attrdata(nlh, hdrlen)	head of attributes data
 *   nlmsg_attrlen(nlh, hdrlen)		length of attributes data
 *
 * Message Parsing:
 *   nlmsg_ok(nlh, remaining)		does nlh fit into remaining bytes?
 *   nlmsg_next(nlh, remaining)		get next netlink message
 *   nlmsg_parse()			parse attributes of a message
 *   nlmsg_find_attr()			find an attribute in a message
 *   nlmsg_for_each_msg()		loop over all messages
 *   nlmsg_validate()			validate netlink message incl. attrs

 *
 * Misc:
 *   nlmsg_report()			report back to application?

 *   nla_put_string(skb, type, str)	add string attribute to skb
 *   nla_put_flag(skb, type)		add flag attribute to skb
 *   nla_put_msecs(skb, type, jiffies)	add msecs attribute to skb
 *
 * Exceptions Based Attribute Construction:
 *   NLA_PUT(skb, type, len, data)	add attribute to skb
 *   NLA_PUT_U8(skb, type, value)	add u8 attribute to skb
 *   NLA_PUT_U16(skb, type, value)	add u16 attribute to skb

 *
 *   The meaning of these functions is equal to their lower case
 *   variants but they jump to the label nla_put_failure in case
 *   of a failure.
 *
 * Nested Attributes Construction:
 *   nla_nest_start(skb, type)		start a nested attribute
 *   nla_nest_end(skb, nla)		finalize a nested attribute
 *   nla_nest_cancel(skb, nla)		cancel nested attribute construction

 *   nla_attr_size(payload)		length of attribute w/o padding
 *   nla_total_size(payload)		length of attribute w/ padding
 *   nla_padlen(payload)		length of padding
 *
 * Attribute Payload Access:
 *   nla_data(nla)			head of attribute payload

 *
 * Attribute Payload Access for Basic Types:
 *   nla_get_u8(nla)			get payload for a u8 attribute

 *   nla_get_flag(nla)			return 1 if flag is true
 *   nla_get_msecs(nla)			get payload for a msecs attribute
 *
 * Attribute Misc:
 *   nla_memcpy(dest, nla, count)	copy attribute into memory
 *   nla_memcmp(nla, data, size)	compare attribute with memory area
 *   nla_strlcpy(dst, nla, size)	copy attribute to a sized string
 *   nla_strcmp(nla, str)		compare attribute with string
 *
 * Attribute Parsing:
 *   nla_ok(nla, remaining)		does nla fit into remaining bytes?
 *   nla_next(nla, remaining)		get next netlink attribute
 *   nla_validate()			validate a stream of attributes
 *   nla_validate_nested()		validate a stream of nested attributes
 *   nla_find()				find attribute in stream of attributes
 *   nla_find_nested()			find attribute in nested attributes
 *   nla_parse()			parse and validate stream of attrs
