OK I went for it. But I posted the resultant patchset as a reply to an
earlier email.

The Patchwork series is
("Convert nfq_open() to use libmnl").

The series is "code only" - I kept back the documentation changes for
spearate review. These documentation changes present the "old API" as
merely an alternative to the mnl API: both use libmnl.

Do you think you might find time to look at it before too long? I know you
are very busy but I would appreciate some feedback.

Cheers ... Duncan.
