This is the second version of the Generic Netlink interface for
IPVS. I integrated some comments from Thomas Graf, Patrick McHardy and
Yoshifuji Hideaki and changed a few things myself. The interface should
now follow existing Netlink conventions more closely and has been
tested without problems.

The two patches add a Generic Netlink interface to IPVS while keeping
the old get/setsockopt interface for userspace backwards compatibility.
The motivation for this is to have a more extensible interface for
future changes, such as the planned IPv6 support. ipvsadm is currently
being extended to support the new interface and features.

The ip_vs.h header change depends on this patch I sent previously:
"IPVS: Move userspace definitions to include/linux/ip_vs.h"
(this one looked good to Horms, can it go in?)
