Subject[PATCH] getdelays: Fix netlink attribute length
Date
A recent change to the netlink code:
6e237d099fac ("netlink: Relax attr validation for fixed length types")
logs a warning when programs send messages with invalid attributes
(e.g., wrong length for a u32). Yafang reported this error message
for tools/accounting/getdelays.c.

send_cmd() is wrongly adding 1 to the attribute length. As noted in
include/uapi/linux/netlink.h nla_len should be NLA_HDRLEN + payload
length, so drop the +1.

Fixes: 9e06d3f9f6b1 ("per task delay accounting taskstats interface: documentation fix")
