For the WiFi yes, but I should have added that this QRTR nameservice is being
used by modems, DSPs and some other co-processors for some offloading tasks.
So currently, they all depend on userspace ns tool for working. So migrating
it to kernel can benefit them all.

Sorry that I should've made it clear in the commit message.
