    You can simply use NULL instead of passing the dummy kerror_netlink_rcv

    +struct kern_log_entry {
    + __u16 log_kmagic; /* always LOGREC_KMAGIC */
    + __u16 log_kversion; /* which version of this struct? */
    + char log_facility[FACILITY_MAXLEN]; /* e.g., driver name */

    These fields should generally be specified in ascending order to help with

    It may also be worth looking at how the ULOG code batches messages to
    improve peformance.
