Subject: [PATCH iproute2-next v4 3/4] iplink: Follow documented behaviour when "index" is given

Both ip-link(8) and error message when "index" parameter is given for
set/delete case says that index can only be given during network
device creation.

Follow this documented behaviour and get rid of ambiguous behaviour in
case of both "dev" and "index" specified for ip link delete scenario
(actually "index" being ignored in favor to "dev").

Prohibit "index" when configuring/deleting group of network devices.
