This patchset simplifies the virtual VXLAN tunnel devices management.
Previous design used the VXLAN devices attached to outer interface for
encapsulation rules. The new design uses the unattached devices, it allows
use the single VXLAN device both for encapsulation and decapsulation rules
and removes UDP port sharing issues. 
Also patchset introduces the minor changes in VXLAN device management
allowing to be compiled and operate on some old kernels (for example RH7.2
original kernel 3.10.327), which do not support VXLAN device metadata.
