At some point here I'm going to bump libnl to version 3 in rawhide.  The
libnl 1.1 we use today is way out of date and we want version 3 for the
enhanced capabilities like bonding, bridging, vlan, etc.  This *does*
mean an API break, so packages will need to be updated for libnl3.  The
majority of the changes are simply function renames and changed
structure names.  There's no porting guide that I'm aware of but I and
others working on NetworkManager have spent time porting from libnl1.1
to libnl3 this cycle so we can point you in the right direction.
