Subject: [PATCH iproute2-next 13/15] lib: parse_mapping: Recognize a keyword "all"

The DCB tool will have to provide an interface to a number of fixed-size
arrays. Unlike the egress- and ingress-qos-map, it makes good sense to have
an interface to set all members to the same value. For example to set
strict priority on all TCs besides select few, or to reset allocated
bandwidth to all zeroes, again besides several explicitly-given ones.

To support this usage, extend the parse_mapping() with a boolean that
determines whether this special use is supported. If "all" is given and
recognized, mapping_cb is called with the key of -1.

Have iplink_vlan pass false for allow_all.
