Subject[patch 07/26] [NETLINK]: Fix processing of fib_lookup netlink messages
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Thomas Graf <tgraf@suug.ch>
The receive path for fib_lookup netlink messages is lacking sanity
checks for header and payload and is thus vulnerable to malformed
netlink messages causing illegal memory references.
