I'm not sure if you're offering to add the feature or are asking us (well, 
Davide) to implement it :)

It would be nice to not have to carry these backward compatibility 
definitions forever, expecially since they're fairly obscure "__*" 
names. Low stakes for MPTCP alone, but it might be good to have as other 
netlink interfaces are migrated.

Davide & Paolo, what do you think?
