    ms/net: allow macvlans to move to net namespace
    We have a problem in macvlan criu test on VZ7:
    ======================== Run zdtm/static/macvlan in ns =========================
    Start test
    Test is SUID
    ./macvlan --pidfile=macvlan.pid --outfile=macvlan.out
    RTNETLINK answers: Invalid argument
    Running zdtm/static/macvlan.hook(--post-start)
    because macvlan_fix_features called from register_netdevice
    updates features from lowerdev and not dropping NETIF_F_NETNS_LOCAL.
    And thus moving zdtmmvlan0 to other ns fails, so changing it to
    be mainstream like. (That do not changes behaviour in CT as macvlan
    is still forbidden there.)
      net: allow macvlans to move to net namespace
      I cannot move a macvlan interface created on top of a bonding interface
      to a different namespace:
      % ip netns add dummy0
      % ip link add link bond0 mac0 type macvlan
      % ip link set mac0 netns dummy0
      RTNETLINK answers: Invalid argument
      The problem seems to be that commit f9399814927a ("bonding: Don't allow
      bond devices to change network namespaces.") sets NETIF_F_NETNS_LOCAL
      on bonding interfaces, and commit 797f87f83b60 ("macvlan: fix netdev
      feature propagation from lower device") causes macvlan interfaces
      to inherit its features from the lower device.
      NETIF_F_NETNS_LOCAL should not be inherited from the lower device
      by a macvlan.
      Patch tested on 3.16.
