Still missing the 'catching' part... Netlink messages are sent like
this, but as long as no userspace thing (eg dbus) catches the
messages, there's no use...
I did look at it, but this is a little too difficult for me (never did
any networking/socket programming).
PS The patch is in some (Gentoo-user) patchsets already. Evil-sources
got it, love-sources too I think.
