[PATCH 0/4] Use netlink for vlan interface management

These patches make hostapd use the netlink api to create and remove vlan
interfaces instead of the old kernel api.
This removes the dependency from the system global linux vlan interface name
type. It thus avoids conflicts with other applications, that can result in
a non-usable network configuration, as the new vlan interfaces won't be added
into the brige (due to the expected name being different from the actual name).
