Yes, those two patches. My part comes directly out of my fingers
and is only compile tested. I didn't even run them yet.

I went through all users of NLMSG_PUT in the modules you touched and
checked if they properly set NLM_F_MULTI and used the new macro when
Anyways, I want to be careful with this, there might be userspace
apps which rely on pid being filled in from siocb->scm->creds or
userspace apps which don't expect the NLM_F_MULTI flag even when
they should so we should check with all parties involved.
