Unfortunately this backport has two very serious problems.

1) The From: is set to you for each patch, but you are not the author
   of these patches.  Most of them are written by Eric Biederman and
   one is written by Linus Torvalds.

   Having to do some backporting when putting together some -stable
   submissions does not mean you can just usurp authorship from the
   person who wrote the original change.

2) You failed to include the patch:

	commit 2d7a85f4b06e9c27ff629f07a524c48074f07f81
	Author: Eric W. Biederman <>

	    netlink: Only check file credentials for implicit destinations

   which fixes this series to not break applications like Zebra.
