In all of the cases below, these functions are called multiple times to
generate data chunks (additional netlink attributes) which are appended
to an existing skbuff. I believe that the calls to genlmsg_cancel() are
still needed to help cleanup in the case where the functions fail on the
Nth call.

If I'm wrong, feel free to enlighten me.
