[NETLINK]: Directly return -EINTR from netlink_dump_start()
Thomas Graf [Fri, 23 Mar 2007 06:30:55 +0000 (23:30 -0700)]
Now that all users of netlink_dump_start() use netlink_run_queue()
to process the receive queue, it is possible to return -EINTR from
netlink_dump_start() directly, therefore simplying the callers.
