We haven't seen anyone object to that type of CVE assignment, so use
CVE-2012-6689 for this Linux kernel issue.

(There may be an alternative viewpoint that the issue, or at least the
patch, was a security/functionality tradeoff.
http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=134522422125983&w=2 says "The
second tries to address netlink spoofing for non-root processes from
the kernel while disabling the ability of two processes to
communicate. Yes, this may be controversial I guess." This refers to
the http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=134522422925986&w=2 patch.)
