tun: TUNGETIFF interface to query name and flags
Add a TUNGETIFF interface so that userspace can query a tun/tap descriptor for its name and flags. This is needed because it is common for one app to create a tap interface, exec another app and pass it the file descriptor for the interface. Without TUNGETIFF the spawned app has no way of detecting wheter the interface has e.g. IFF_VNET_HDR set.
