Netlink in a kernel module

Hi everybody,

I'd like to use a netlink socket to bind a kernel module to a userspace program to exchange some data between these two.

I'm a beginner in kernel programming.
I found this
and this.

But these codes seem to be outdated, I think there were some changes in the netlink part of the API. I'm unable to compile them.

The final target for my project is an ARM9 processor and a 2.6.23 kernel.

If you have some current tutorial or docs about how to make a simple netlink communication, it would be great ..

Many thanks
