[NETFILTER]: nfnetlink: parse attributes with nfattr_parse in nfnetlink_check_attribute
Pablo Neira Ayuso [Wed, 14 Mar 2007 23:45:39 +0000 (16:45 -0700)]
Use nfattr_parse to parse attributes, this patch also modifies the default
behaviour since unknown attributes will be ignored instead of returning
EINVAL. This ensure backward compatibility: new libraries with new
attributes and old kernels can work.
