It would be even better to mention it in the kernel documentation,
since iproute2 is fairly standard now. I'm really not enough of a
kernel hacker to change it, but the current Configure.help entry for
CONFIG_NETLINK suggests that it is useful only for relatively
obscure applications.

You need to say Y here to use the tools in the iproute2 package
(<ftp://ftp.inr.ac.ru>).

And is CONFIG_RTNETLINK also necessary for ip?
