Subject: [PATCH 2/5] net: Allow to create links with given ifindex

Currently the RTM_NEWLINK results in -EOPNOTSUPP if the ifinfomsg->ifi_index
is not zero. I propose to allow requesting ifindices on link creation. This
is required by the checkpoint-restore to correctly restore a net namespace
(i.e. -- a container).
