Configuring generic network device parameters on tun will fail in
presence of IFLA_INFO_KIND attribute in IFLA_LINKINFO nested attribute
since tun_validate() always return failure.

This can be visualized with following ip-link(8) command sequences:

  # ip link set dev tun0 group 100
  # ip link set dev tun0 group 100 type tun
  RTNETLINK answers: Invalid argument

with contrast to dummy and veth drivers:

  # ip link set dev dummy0 group 100
  # ip link set dev dummy0 type dummy

  # ip link set dev veth0 group 100
  # ip link set dev veth0 group 100 type veth

Fix by returning zero in tun_validate() when @data is NULL that is
always in case since rtnl_link_ops->maxtype is zero in tun driver.
