Do I need to worry about data serialization when sending it between two linux kernels?

Posted by sochan 
I'm writing a driver that sends data over netlink to a server program which then sends it over TCP/IP and again over netlink back into a kernel driver on a different machine.

Since I know for sure both machines are running linux and pretty close verions too should I worry at all about serialization of my data or can I just send data structures directly?

If I do have to worry about it does linux kernel have any ready methods of data serialization or will I have to write them myself?
