dev: always advertise rx_flags changes via netlink
When flags IFF_PROMISC and IFF_ALLMULTI are changed, netlink messages are not consistent. For example, if a multicast daemon is running (flag IFF_ALLMULTI set in dev->flags but not dev->gflags, ie not exported to userspace) and then a user sets it via netlink (flag IFF_ALLMULTI set in dev->flags and dev->gflags, ie exported to userspace), no netlink message is sent. Same for IFF_PROMISC and because dev->promiscuity is exported via IFLA_PROMISCUITY, we may send a netlink message after each change of this counter.
