OK. In the mean time you're welcome to keep using your local patch. :)
In fact part of the new Guidelines for Distribution on the wiki was
written with this specific issue in mind:

This issue will be fixed at some point in the future, hopefully in
1.1.2. I would very much like to find a solution where we get
"acceptable" behavior on BSD kernels that implement the Linux syscall
API but not netlink, however.

Yes, this has always been part of the intent for that agenda item.
