You won't get a new version in 5.2; we elected to backport requested
functionality because the reported issues weren't enough to justify a
rebase in the time available.  We're investigating the possibility of a
rebase to 0.6.6 or 0.7 for RHEL 5.3.

At a minimum you'll also need to rebuild your libnl.  Though since NM
depends on a newer version where the .so changed, you could have both
the pre-1.0 libnl and libnl-1.1 installed at the same time.
