The first patch I submitted, while "correct", is a bit harsh, since successful
handling of control messages like NLMSG_DONE requires that the consumer of
libnfnetlink install a subsystem handler for NFNL_SUBSYS_NONE and provide
callbacks for each message type, and AFAIK no downstream code currently does
this. I think it's better to handle control messages right within
nfnl_handle_packet() and never pass them along. I've posted a second patch
which does this.
