If the values are:
	p->dev == NULL
	ifindex == 0
	p->net != net

The parms should not be taken into account and the looping must 
continue. But with this modification it is not the case, if we specify 
parms ifindex == 0, the first parms with the dev field set to NULL will 
be taken belonging or not to the right net.

IMO the right test is:

if (p->net == net && ((p->dev && p->dev->ifindex == ifindex) || !p->dev 
&& !ifindex)))

I definitively prefer the first notation :)
