    This is a simple load balancing schema.
    Netlink messages may be dropped in socket queue when
    they are bing delivered to userspace - this is the same -
    if work queue can not be scheduled, message will be dropped,
    but in this case userspace also can not be scheduled
    and message will be dropped.
