get_target_net() will be used in follow-up patches in ipv{4,6} codepaths to
retrieve network namespaces based on network namespace identifiers. So
remove the static declaration and export in the rtnetlink header. Also,
rename it to rtnl_get_net_ns_capable() to make it obvious what this
function is doing.
Export rtnl_get_net_ns_capable() so it can be used when ipv6 is built as
a module.

v1->v2:
- unchanged

v0->v1:
- export rtnl_get_net_ns_capable().
  Kbuild reported a build failure when ipv6 is built as a module. This was
  caused by rtnl_get_net_ns_capable() not being exported. Fix this by
  exporting it.
