SubjectRe: [PATCH v3] net-netlink: Add a new attribute to expose TOS values via netlink
From
Eric,
I think it would be useful to expose the values this way.
I shall make the changes to add TCLASS for ipv6 in the description.

Regarding the TIME_WAIT state, I think it would be better of not
exposing the values because there would hardly be anything to transmit
during this time.

Thanks,
Murali
