The netlink interface was not dropped. See:

No, the /dev/nfc interface is gone with this subsystem. Instead you will talk
to an AF_NFC socket, or to the NFC generic netlink socket for some NFC high
level commands and events. See:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-wireless&m=130705125728090&w=2

for more details.

Cheers,
Samuel.
