In case TUN support is not enabled, the test will fail while
performing the "ip" command with following error:
   open: No such file or directory
   netns_netlink    1  TBROK  :  netns_netlink.c:143: system() failed

As the system() call is not setting errno, we are not able to know
if the error is produced by a mis-configuration or not.

Because of that, this commit adds a check during the setup function to see
if the device "/dev/net/tun" is available or not. It is the file
that "ip tuntap add mode tap" command is looking for (and fails with
the "open" error).
