Default netcf and the libnl rebuild

Does anyone know netcf[1]? It still needs a rebuild[2] for the libnl
3.2 bump and it seems to be outdated as well (0.1.7 in our repos,
0.1.9 upstream).

Ubuntu has libnl 3.2 patches[3] for it, but they don't apply to the
upstream 0.1.9 sources.

I'd rather have this handled properly instead of just blindly
rebuilding against libnl1.

Default netcf and the libnl rebuild

It doesn't seem like Fedora has any patches either [1]. I'd expect
them to be the first ones to have patches, since they are the main
developers of netcf, but they haven't upgraded libnl either [2].

There's an (automated) bug report about the new libnl [3]. Hopefully,
the developers can do something about it.

Seems like we need to build netcf with libnl3, since libvirt links to
both libnetcf and libpcap (already built against libnl3).

Also see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=651033 .

Too bad Ubuntu's netcf is so far removed from upstream. Can anyone
make a patch, please?

Alternatively, what functionality will we lose if libvirt is build
without netcf?

"--with-netcf libnetcf support to configure physical host network"

That's what ./configure tells me for libvirt. Quick google has it that
this is used by libvirt to configure network interfaces on the physical
host.

So keeping netcf support would be a good thing for folks having e.g.
bridged network setups using libvirt, which is quite common if one
virtualizes is complete server environment.
