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?

Just getting the bug approved for the next release :)
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
The iproute package was distributed without the libnetlink library.
It wasn't possible for EL users to utilize the libnetlink library features.
The libnetlink library is now included in the newly introduced devel subpackage.
EL users can now utilize libnetlink features.
Temporary switching to MODIFIED for ET.
