 NLMSG_PUT_ANSWER(skb, nlcb, type, length)
   Start a new netlink message as answer to a request,
   returns the message header.

 NLMSG_END(skb, nlh)
   End a netlink message, fixes total message length,
   returns skb->len.

 NLMSG_CANCEL(skb, nlh)
   Cancel the building process and trim whole message
   from skb again, returns -1.
