    netlink: add netlink_kernel_cfg parameter to netlink_kernel_create · a31f2d17
    Pablo Neira Ayuso authored
    This patch adds the following structure:
    struct netlink_kernel_cfg {
            unsigned int    groups;
            void            (*input)(struct sk_buff *skb);
            struct mutex    *cb_mutex;
    That can be passed to netlink_kernel_create to set optional configurations
    for netlink kernel sockets.
    I've populated this structure by looking for NULL and zero parameters at the
    existing code. The remaining parameters that always need to be set are still
    left in the original interface.
    That includes optional parameters for the netlink socket creation. This allows
    easy extensibility of this interface in the future.
    This patch also adapts all callers to use this new interface.
