From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

When netlink sockets are used to convey data that is in a namespace
we need a way to select a subset of the listening sockets to deliver
the packet to.  For the network namespace we have been doing this
by only transmitting packets in the correct network namespace.

For data belonging to other namespaces netlink_bradcast_filtered
provides a mechanism that allows us to examine the destination
socket and to decide if we should transmit the specified packet
to it.
