    SubjectRe: [PATCH] net-proc: expose the tos values in /proc/net/[tcp|udp]
    I shall make the changes by exposing the tos values via the
    netlink as suggested. I had a doubt is I have to modify the
    inet_diag_sockid or export it via a new option. I am considering
    that adding into inet_diag_sockid is better because the latter is a
    bit of a over kill for a single value to be exposed and it also seems
    to be logical fit.
    Can you let me know your thoughts on this.
