net: Support specifying the network namespace upon device creation.
There is no good reason to not support userspace specifying the network namespace during device creation, and it makes it easier to create a network device and pass it to a child network namespace with a well known name. We have to be careful to ensure that the target network namespace for the new device exists through the life of the call. To keep that logic clear I have factored out the network namespace grabbing logic into rtnl_link_get_net. In addtion we need to continue to pass the source network namespace to the rtnl_link_ops.newlink method so that we can find the base device source network namespace. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
