Created attachment 583944 [details]
Build EL from Fedora's branch of iproute but omit linux-atm stuff (which hasn't been ported)

Description of problem:

The libnetlink.a library (and headers) is built as part of iproute in Fedora. I've some programs I'd like to backport to CentOS/RHEL but can't because of the lack of these files.

Can we switch RHEL to share iproute with Fedora?
