CONFIG_COMPAT_NETLINK_MESSAGES

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_COMPAT_NETLINK_MESSAGES:

Help text

This option makes it possible to send different netlink messages to tasks depending on whether the task is a compat task or not. To achieve this, you need to set skb_shinfo(skb)->frag_list to the compat skb before sending the skb, the netlink code will sort out which message to actually pass to the task.

Newly written code should NEVER need this option but do compat-independent messages instead!
