From: Jiri Pirko <jiri@mellanox.com>

Extend ll_name_to_index() to get the index of a netdevice using
alternative interface name. Allow alternative long names to pass checks
in couple of ip link/addr commands.

Signed-off-by: Jiri Pirko <jiri@mellanox.com>
---
v3->v4:
- moved utils.h include into the first patch
v2->v3:
- removed altnametoindex and doing IFLA_IFNAME/IFLA_ALT_IFNAME in
  ll_link_get() instead.
rfc->v1:
- added patch description
