 * struct sockaddr_nm - The sockaddr structure for NET_MGMT sockets
 *
 * Similar concepts are used as in Linux AF_NETLINK. The NETLINK name is not
 * used in order to avoid confusion between Zephyr and Linux as the
 * implementations are different.
 *
 * The socket domain (address family) is AF_NET_MGMT, and the type of socket
 * is either SOCK_RAW or SOCK_DGRAM, because this is a datagram-oriented
 * service.
 *
 * The protocol (protocol type) selects for which feature the socket is used.
 *
 * When used with bind(), the nm_pid field of the sockaddr_nm can be
 * filled with the calling thread' own id. The nm_pid serves here as the local
 * address of this net_mgmt socket. The application is responsible for picking
 * a unique integer value to fill in nm_pid.
