commit a07ea4d9941af5a0c6f0be2a71b51ac9c083c5e5

    genetlink: no longer support using static family IDs
    
    Static family IDs have never really been used, the only
    use case was the workaround I introduced for those users
    that assumed their family ID was also their multicast
    group ID.
    
    Additionally, because static family IDs would never be
    reserved by the generic netlink code, using a relatively
    low ID would only work for built-in families that can be
    registered immediately after generic netlink is started,
    which is basically only the control family (apart from
    the workaround code, which I also had to add code for so
    it would reserve those IDs)
    
    Thus, anything other than GENL_ID_GENERATE is flawed and
    luckily not used except in the cases I mentioned. Move
    those workarounds into a few lines of code, and then get
    rid of GENL_ID_GENERATE entirely, making it more robust.
