I don't understand this change at all.

You keep saying "Remove" but I think you might mean simply "Move" because
the NETNS_LOCAL flag prevents moving not removing.

And why is it bad to allow vxlan devices to be moved between network
namespaces?  What problem would it cause and can you guarantee that
you are not breaking an existing user?

I'm not applying this as-is.
