Is there a reason to have these as globals? Neither seems to be used
outside of netkit_parse_opt(), nor seems to rely on maintaining state
between calls?

matches() has been out of fashion in iproute2 lately, because it makes
it not obvious that newly-added keywords do not break parsing of the
existing ones. Please just make it strcmp().

LGTM otherwise.
