Subject: [RFC net-next 5/9] genetlink: add a structure for dump state

Whenever netlink dump uses more than 2 cb->args[] entries
code gets hard to read. We're about to add more state to
ctrl_dumppolicy() so create a structure.

Since the structure is typed and clearly named we can remove
the local fam_id variable and use ctx->fam_id directly.
