> There is the patch [1] that uses master device Netlink socket to retrieve
> master device link settings. This is not thread safe because this resource may
> be in use by other call to the master device itself. Using the same Netlink
> socket concurrently from the multiple threads causes Netlink requests
> malfunction and must be eliminated. The patch replaces master Netlink
> socket with the socket from representor device.
