Subject[PATCH 0/3] w1: fixes and bundling replies
A program can bundle a sequence of commands in one netlink packet but
the kernel was having to reply in many different packets, this adds a
flag W1_CN_BUNDLE in the cn_msg.flags to allow the kernel to bundle
the replies in to one message. This is opt in to avoid breaking
programs that aren't expecting additional messages.

Netlink connector now has a new call cn_netlink_send_multi, which
allow sending multiple cn_msg structures in a nlmsghdr structure.

I tested with my client program that will bundle up 14 temperature
sensor conversions, then after a delay, bundle up another set of
commands to read all 14 with the bundle bit set. I also tested with a
two year old version of the software that sends requests two one slave
at a time (bundling only the write/read to get the data out), and
doesn't have code to read the bundling the this patch adds. Both
operate correctly running at the same time.
