Need a dependency on NET there?

The __init here isn't needed (doesn't make sense, is missing the required
#include anyway)

hm, so if CONFIG_DM_NETLINK=n we end up taking the address of an inlined
function.  So the __init above _did_ make sense, in a peculiar way.  I
don't know that gcc will actually put that converted-to-non-inline function
into the desired section though.

There's no way in which those inlined functions will ever get inlined.
Perhaps all this would be better if there was no implementation of
dm_netlink_init() and dm_netlink_exit() if CONFIG_DM_NETLINK=n and you just
whack the requisite ifdefs into these tables here?

Have the net guys checked this?
