Yes, I have one now. :)
I need to write a user application to test my patch.
Netlink messages can be sent/received using the standard socket API.
But how to receive Genetlink messages from specified genetlink family?
There is no socket ACPI with such a parameter, right?
Do I have to receive all the genetlink messages first?
It would be great if there are any examples on user space communication.

Or should I use libnl library instead?
