Shouldn't rtnl_ifgroup_n2a() using __u32 for "id"? It is actually handed
a __u32 value.

Shouldn't we better use "hex" here? "hex" is used for values up to 255
and iptables matches use hex for all values as well.
(__u32 change proposed above will make "id<0" pointless.)

Why should we hardcode base 16 here. strtoul can handle dec and hex
(0x..) just fine. The iptables matches are usign strtoul(,,0) as
well.

Why do you restrict to values <=255? iptables match does not limit
and I do not really understand why I should restrict the values here.
(Even if they may not have a textual representation.)
