       This function allocates and pre-fills an skb for a reply to the
       testmode command. Since it is intended for a reply, calling it outside
       of the testmode_cmd operation is invalid.

       The returned skb (or NULL if any errors happen) is pre-filled with the
       wiphy index and set up in a way that any data that is put into the skb
       (with skb_put, nla_put or similar) will end up being within the
       NL80211_ATTR_TESTDATA attribute, so all that needs to be done with the
       skb is adding data for the corresponding userspace tool which can then
       read that data out of the testdata attribute. You must not modify the
       skb in any other way.

       When done, call cfg80211_testmode_reply with the skb and return its
       error code as the result of the testmode_cmd operation.
