netlink: Diag core and basic socket info dumping (v2)
The netlink_diag can be built as a module, just like it's done in unix sockets. The core dumping message carries the basic info about netlink sockets: family, type and protocol, portis, dst_group, dst_portid, state. Groups can be received as an optional parameter NETLINK_DIAG_GROUPS. Netlink sockets cab be filtered by protocols. The socket inode number and cookie is reserved for future per-socket info retrieving. The per-protocol filtering is also reserved for future by requiring the sdiag_protocol to be zero. The file /proc/net/netlink doesn't provide enough information for dumping netlink sockets. It doesn't provide dst_group, dst_portid, groups above 32. v2: fix NETLINK_DIAG_MAX. Now it's equal to the last constant. Acked-by: Pavel Emelyanov <xemul@parallels.com> Cc: "David S.
