Subject: [PATCH 1/2] Introduce the generic rtnl_create_link()

This routine gets the parsed rtnl attributes and creates a new
link with generic info (IFLA_LINKINFO policy). Its intention
is to help the drivers, that need to create several links at 
once (like VETH).

This is nothing but a copy-paste-ed part of rtnl_newlink() function
that is responsible for creation of new device.
