netlink/genetlink: pass network namespace to bind/unbind
Netlink families can exist in multiple namespaces, and for the most part multicast subscriptions are per network namespace. Thus it only makes sense to have bind/unbind notifications per network namespace. To achieve this, pass the network namespace of a given client socket to the bind/unbind functions. Also do this in generic netlink, and there also make sure that any bind for multicast groups that only exist in init_net is rejected. This isn't really a problem if it is accepted since a client in a different namespace will never receive any notifications from such a group, but it can confuse the family if not rejected (it's also possible to silently (without telling the family) accept it, but it would also have to be ignored on unbind so families that take any kind of action on bind/unbind won't do unnecessary work for invalid clients like that.
