Why don't you send said patch to the libnl upstream? I'm sure once the
kernel module is in they will be interested in such a patch.

Did you send it more than once?

According to http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/132315/ it is in state
"changes requested". There is a longish thread attached to the posting
so I assume it is something in there.

Just like with submitting patches to Xen you need to address any review
comments and resend patches, ping people etc, it's not just a case of
firing and forgetting a patch on a mailing list.
