I'm sorry, I don't have any experience using the multicast aspect of Generic
Netlink (or Netlink proper for that matter), so other than pointing you at
examples in the kernel I'm not sure I can be of much help. However, this
might be a good learning exercise of how to debug kernel issues - if you are
in the process of developing new kernel code this is a worthwhile skill to
have :)
