Actually when action specific ->get_fill_size() is not
implemented, I want to fall back to the current behaviour, where we
always allocate NLMSG_GOODSIZE bytes for skb. So in this case size
passed to tcf_add_notify is estimated in tcf_action_full_attrs_size()
and smaller then NLMSG_GOODSIZE (which is page size).
But may be you're right, API should return explicit size of the message,
we can't expect PAGE_SIZE to be large enough.
I will then change this in v3.
