 * We assign a single generic netlink family ID to each device (to
 * simplify lookup).
 * We need a way to map family ID to a wimax_dev pointer.
 * The idea is to use a very simple lookup. Using a netlink attribute
 * with (for example) the interface name implies a heavier search over
 * all the network devices; seemed kind of a waste given that we know
 * we are looking for a WiMAX device and that most systems will have
 * just a single WiMAX adapter.
 * We put all the WiMAX devices in the system in a linked list and
 * match the generic link family ID against the list.
 * By using a linked list, the case of a single adapter in the system
 * becomes (almost) no overhead, while still working for many more. If
 * it ever goes beyond two, I'll be surprised.
