The one thing that seems just a little odd about this is that it
embraces the new struct netdev_tunnel_config less than I would have
guessed.  parse_tunnel_config() is where I noticed it the most: I
would have expected that it would transform the key-value pairs into a
struct netdev_tunnel_config, then the struct netdev_tunnel_config into
netlink attributes in a second step.  However, the code seems OK to
me, it just wasn't exactly what I was expecting.
