3.2.1 InterfaceAddrRequest

 On Netlink++ application you simply include OZ++ netlink class header files as your needs, as shown below. You also have to write your own main function of the C/C++ program entry point.
The following InterfaceAddrRequest class is an example to send a NetlinkRequest for the structure ifaddrmsg to get IPv4 interface addresses.
Note:
1. Define your own netlink request C++ class.
2. Add a member variable of NetlinkRequest<T> which includes a netlink message header and a requst body of type T.
3. Add a member variable of SocketNetlink which can be used as a communication channel to the kernel.
4. Define a contructor to initialize the above two member variables.
5. Define a send method to send your netlink request to the kernel through the SocketNetlink.
6. Define a recv method to receive a reply from the kernel through the SocketNetlink.
7. In main function, create an instance of your request class, and call the send and recv mothods for the instance.
