While technically possible, using the netlink character device with
ip_queue is not recommended. Instead, you should normally use the native
netlink sockets interface via libipq (please look at intercept.c in the
testsuite as an example).
Updates to the userspace queuing API and documentation are being worked
on, although I'm not sure where this would fit best with the current
Rusty & Marc, what do you think of the idea of creating a separate package
for the userspace queuing components? This would contain the library,
headers, docs and sample apps. Down the track, this may also be home to
more substantial extensions such as language bindings.
One requirement would be that a stable version of the library is always
available for the testsuite, although this should not be difficult (any
currently working version of the library should continue to work unless
the kernel code changes significantly, and there are no existing plans
I am volunteering to maintain this if needed.
