net: netlink: virtual tap device management
Similarly to the networking receive path with ptype_all taps, we add the possibility to register netdevices that are for ARPHRD_NETLINK to the netlink subsystem, so that those can be used for netlink analyzers resp. debuggers. We do not offer a direct callback function as out-of-tree modules could do crap with it. Instead, a netdevice must be registered properly and only receives a clone, managed by the netlink layer. Symbols are exported as GPL-only. Signed-off-by: Daniel Borkmann <dborkman@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
