Could you send us a unfront patch to add something like:

static inline u16 nfnl_msg_type(u8 subsys, u8 msg_type)
{
        return subsys << 8 | msg_type;
}

I would suggest you place this in include/linux/netfilter/nfnetlink.h

Then, use it here.

... And here too.

And so on. Look for more spots where we can replace this opencoded
thing.

I guess there are more spots in all of the net/netfilter/ netlink
subsystems.

Once that patch gets in, you can follow up with this parens cleanup.

Thanks!

P.S: Cc'ing netfilter-devel@...r.kernel.org (and
lvs-devel@...r.kernel.org if you touch 'ipvs' bits) should be fine. No
need to Cc all those many lists, better to narrow down you target.
