On Linux and most other systems, network interface index is a 32-bit
integer.  Indexes overflowing the 16-bit integer are frequently seen
when used inside a Docker container.

Looks good, Linux API is inconsistent in use of signed vs unsigned
int for the ifindex. But negative values are never used/returned.

Fixes: 7c25284e30c2 ("net/tap: add netlink back-end for flow API")
Fixes: 2bc06869cd94 ("net/tap: add remote netdevice traffic capture")
Cc: stable@dpdk.org

Applied to dpdk-next-net/main, thanks.
