netfilter: nfnetlink: relax strict multicast group check from netlink_bind
Relax the checking that was introduced in 97840cb ("netfilter: nfnetlink: fix insufficient validation in nfnetlink_bind") when the subscription bitmask is used. Existing userspace code code may request to listen to all of the existing netlink groups by setting an all to one subscription group bitmask. Netlink already validates subscription via setsockopt() for us. Signed-off-by: Pablo Neira Ayuso <pablo@netfilter.org>
