Subject: [PATCH] make netlink processing routines semi-synchronious
	(inspired by rtnl) v2

The code in netfilter/nfnetlink.c and in ./net/netlink/genetlink.c looks
like outdated copy/paste from rtnetlink.c. Push them into sync with the
original.

Changes from v1:
- deleted comment in nfnetlink_rcv_msg by request of Patrick McHardy

Signed-off-by: Denis V. Lunev <den@...nvz.org>
