The code was built into iproute2, so we don't need the .so file.
That rule does not work on arch/x86_64 so I had to do something
and the easiest was to simply compile the code in.  Like Patrick
did with his recent VLAN support.

The usefulness of a .so file seems to be distributing the code
outside of /bin/ip.  Although I think we currently have some issues with
mixed 32bit and 64bit systems because we have "/usr/lib/ip/link_*.so"
hard coded.

A .so file always seems to override the compiled in version so I don't
think we loose any flexibility on that front.
