This is to provide a workaround for issue #1170 where systemd-networkd removes the IP addresses added by keepalived. It may also have other uses.

pqarmitage added some commits May 13, 2019

Add support for use_ipvlan (use an ipvlan i/f similar to use_vmac)
Issue #1170 identified that use_vmac didn't work with systemd-networkd
since systemd-networkd was removing IP addresses created by keepalived
(and any other application). It was discovered that systemd-networkd
did not remove IP addresses from ipvlans.

This commit adds support for ipvlans, but to work around the problem,
and because it might have other uses.

Systemd commit - systemd/systemd#12511 has added
configuration options to stop systemd-networkd removing IP addresses
added by other applications, but it is not merged yet, and it will be a
while before all the distros merge it.

Fix building with ipvlans before IFLA_IPVLAN_FLAGS was defined

Default IPVLANs to bridge mode
We shouldn't change the behaviour if a kernel is upgraded, so
default to the original mode supported.
