Because netlink is an IPC mechanism, you must bind with nl_pid 0 to make sure 
you are talking to the kernel. The kernel code should only interpret packets 
that have nl_pid set to 0. Any other packets should be discarded perhaps with 
an error to make sure there's no impostors.

David is building a new kernel for everyone, I'll re-test when its available.
