I don't quite yet know the context but I have to intervene: keeping
sockets open is not good.  This will only cause problems.

Any interface must be memory based.  Something like "register a word
which is set when an event arrives" is a much better interface.  Who you
then go and retrieve messages is another issue.  If this is a rare event
then opening is new netlink socket is no problem.
