Hi Greg,

I think this patch is related to upstream patch 3b0f31f2b8c9f
("genetlink: make policy common to family") where it moved the generic
netlink policy from genl_ops to genl_family.

This patch does remove policy from struct genl_ops, but it does not
add the policy to genl_family. Can you update that part in various
places as well?

Also, it would be great to include that upstream commit into the
commit message for reference purpose.

Thanks,

-Yi-Hung

Yep, missed that.  I'll fix that up in the next patch.
