genetlink, it's been moved to its own
A number of netlink packages are already available for Go, but I wasn't able to find one that aligned with what I wanted in a netlink package:

- Well tested
- Well documented
- Makes use of Go best practices
- Doesn't need root to work
My goal for this package is to use it as a building block for the creation of other netlink family packages.
