[NETNS]: Process inet_confirm_addr in the correct namespace.

inet_confirm_addr can be called with NULL in_dev from arp_ignore iff
scope is RT_SCOPE_LINK.

Lets always pass the device and check for RT_SCOPE_LINK scope inside
inet_confirm_addr. This let us take network namespace from in_device a
need for an additional argument.
