Subject[PATCH v3 3/6] rtnetlink: allow RTM_NEWLINK to act upon interfaces in arbitrary namespaces
Date
RTM_NEWLINK can be used mostly interchangeably with RTM_SETLINK for
modifying device configuration. As such, this method requires the same
logic as RTM_SETLINK for finding the device to act on.

With this patch, the IFLA_TARGET_NETNSID selects the namespace in which
to search for the interface to act upon. This allows, for example, to
set the namespace of an interface outside the current namespace by
selecting it with the (IFLA_TARGET_NETNSID,ifi->ifi_index) pair and
specifying the namespace with one of IFLA_NET_NS_[PID|FD].

Since rtnl_newlink branches off into do_setlink, we need to provide the
same backwards compatibility check as we do for RTM_SETLINK: if the
device is not found in the namespace given by IFLA_TARGET_NETNSID then
we search for it in the current namespace. If found there, it's
namespace will be changed, as before.
