Daniel Borkmann - June 12, 2013, 3:54 p.m.
These are the only calls under net/ that do not check nla_parse_nested()
for its error code, but simply continue execution. If parsing of netlink
attributes fails, we should return with an error instead of continuing.
In nearly all of these calls we have a policy attached, that is being
type verified during nla_parse_nested(), which we would miss checking
for otherwise.

 I'm ok if this goes through nf-next, since it might probably not be
 too critical for the moment. If you think otherwise, feel free to
 apply this to nf tree instead.

Applied, thanks Daniel.

I'm going to run some tests, this may uncover wrong policies as they
were not enforced.
