Subject: [PATCH net] netlink: preserve netlink pkt_type on dev_queue_xmit_nit

In dev_queue_xmit_nit(), we unconditionally overwrite
the pkt_type of the new skb clone to PACKET_OUTGOING,
thus in packet sockets, we always propagate this to
sll_pkttype member of struct sockaddr_ll.

Hence, probe for skb_nit_type_netlink() and in case
we tap on a non-netlink socket, overwrite the setting
to PACKET_OUTGOING just as before. I think we can mark
the _non_-netlink sockets as likely since i) we don't
expect such heavy load in netlink messages as we do
with network packets, and ii) tapping on netlink
messages is rather to be considered a rare event
compared to tapping on network packets.

I have tested this with capturing on latest netsniff-ng
and propagation works fine. While at it, we also fixed
up the comment style and added two cases where their
conditions are to be considered unlikely() as well.
