Can only use it once per message type, but NLM_F_DUMP_FILTERED is a flag
that can be set to explicitly say the request is filtered as requested.
See 21fdd092acc7e. I would like to see other filters added for addresses
in the same release this gets used. The only one that comes to mind for
addresses is to only return addresses for devices with master device
index N (same intent as 21fdd092acc7e for neighbors).
