     DESCRIPTION
          The genl utility provides a simple frontend to the generic

          used to query the generic netlink controller.

          ways:

          help This command just prints a help text for the ctrl
               object.

          list Show the registered netlink users.

          monitor
               Listen for generic netlink notifications.
