Subject: v2: [PATCH 2/3] netdevice: Fix promiscuity and allmulti overflow

Max of promiscuity and allmulti plus positive @inc can cause overflow.
Fox example: when allmulti=0xFFFFFFFF, any caller give dev_set_allmulti() a
positive @inc will cause allmulti be off.
This is not what we want, though it's rare case.
The fix is that only negative @inc will cause allmulti or promiscuity be off
and when any caller makes the counters touch the roof, we return error.

Change of v2:
Change void function dev_set_promiscuity/allmulti to return int.
So callers can get the overflow error.
Caller's fix will be done later.
