    SYNOPSIS

           #include <asm/types.h>
           #include <linux/netlink.h>
    
           int NLMSG_ALIGN(size_t len);

           int NLMSG_SPACE(size_t len);
           void *NLMSG_DATA(struct nlmsghdr *nlh);
           struct nlmsghdr *NLMSG_NEXT(struct nlmsghdr *nlh, int len);
           int NLMSG_OK(struct nlmsghdr *nlh, int len);

    DESCRIPTION

           <linux/netlink.h> defines several standard macros to access or create a
           netlink datagram.  They are similar in spirit to the macros defined  in
           cmsg(3)  for  auxiliary  data.  The buffer passed to and from a netlink
           socket should be accessed using only these macros.
    
           NLMSG_ALIGN()
                  Round the length of a netlink message up to align it properly.
    
           NLMSG_LENGTH()
                  Given the payload length, len, this macro  returns  the  aligned
                  length to store in the nlmsg_len field of the nlmsghdr.
    
           NLMSG_SPACE()
                  Return  the  number of bytes that a netlink message with payload
                  of len would occupy.
    
           NLMSG_DATA()
                  Return a pointer to the payload associated with the passed nlms-
                  ghdr.
    
           NLMSG_NEXT()
                  Get  the  next nlmsghdr in a multipart message.  The caller must
                  check if the current nlmsghdr didn't have  the  NLMSG_DONE  set--
                  this  function  doesn't return NULL on end.  The len argument is
                  an lvalue containing the remaining length of the message buffer.
                  This macro decrements it by the length of the message header.
    
           NLMSG_OK()
                  Return  true if the netlink message is not truncated and is in a
                  form suitable for parsing.
    
           NLMSG_PAYLOAD()
                  Return the length of the payload associated with the nlmsghdr.
    
    
    

    CONFORMING TO

           These macros are nonstandard Linux extensions.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           It is often better to use netlink via libnetlink than via the low-level
