The ifindex doesn't have to be unique for multiple network namespaces on
the same machine.

  $ ip netns add test1
  $ ip -net test1 link add dummy1 type dummy
  $ ip netns add test2
  $ ip -net test2 link add dummy2 type dummy

  $ ip -net test1 link show dev dummy1
  6: dummy1: <BROADCAST,NOARP> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
      link/ether 96:81:55:1e:dd:85 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
  $ ip -net test2 link show dev dummy2
  6: dummy2: <BROADCAST,NOARP> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
      link/ether 5a:3c:af:35:07:c3 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

But the batman-adv code to walk through the various layers of virtual
interfaces uses this assumption because dev_get_iflink handles it
internally and doesn't return the actual netns of the iflink. And
dev_get_iflink only documents the situation where ifindex == iflink for
physical devices.

But only checking for dev->netdev_ops->ndo_get_iflink is also not an option
because ipoib_get_iflink implements it even when it sometimes returns an
iflink != ifindex and sometimes iflink == ifindex. The caller must
therefore make sure itself to check both netns and iflink + ifindex for
equality. Only when they are equal, a "physical" interface was detected
which should stop the traversal. On the other hand, vxcan_get_iflink can
also return 0 in case there was currently no valid peer. In this case, it
is still necessary to stop.
