[RFC PATCH net-next v3 2/4] rtnl: add link netns id to interface messages

This patch adds a new attribute (IFLA_LINK_NETNSID) which contains the 'link'
netns id when this netns is different from the netns where the interface
stands (for example for x-net interfaces like ip tunnels). When there is no id,
we put NETNSA_NSINDEX_UNKNOWN into this attribute to indicate to userland that
the link netns is different from the interface netns. Hence, userland knows that
some information like IFLA_LINK are not interpretable.
