Subject: [NETLINK]: Avoid pointer in netlink_run_queue

Hi Dave:

[NETLINK]: Avoid pointer in netlink_run_queue

I was looking at Patrick's fix to inet_diag and it occured
to me that we're using a pointer argument to return values
unnecessarily in netlink_run_queue.  Changing it to return
the value will allow the compiler to generate better code
since the value won't have to be memory-backed.

Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@...dor.apana.org.au>

Cheers,
