This is needed for C/R.  For checkpoint, we need to be able to follow
the link from one veth device to its peer.  For restart, we need to be
able to link two veth devices we've restored to re-establish their
relationship.

If you're going to CC: netdev on your first two patches
that expose infrastructure, you should CC: us on the
third patch too so we can see how in the world you're
using this stuff.
