This doesn't make a lot of sense.  That header has been around since
Linux 2.1.  But it didn't define NETLINK_GENERIC then.

(The test for <sys/ioctl.h> doesn't make sense either, as we include it
unconditionally!)

So what I've committed instead makes this unconditional, but adds a
conditional definition of NETLINK_GENERIC.
