It is possible for two different tasks with access to the same file
descriptor to call tun_set_iff on it at the same time and race to
attach to a tap device.  Prevent this by placing all of the logic to
attach to a file descriptor in one function and testing the file
descriptor to be certain it is not already attached to another tun
device.
