Subject: [PATCH net-next 3/3] netlink: add validation of NLA_F_NESTED flag

Add new validation flag NL_VALIDATE_NESTED which adds three consistency
checks of NLA_F_NESTED_FLAG:

  - the flag is set on attributes with NLA_NESTED{,_ARRAY} policy
  - the flag is not set on attributes with other policies except NLA_UNSPEC
  - the flag is set on attribute passed to nla_parse_nested()
