FS#2344 - add VRF support

https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/vrf.txt

Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) would appear to be a perfect companion for a router device, considering its benefits

* higher priority ip rules (Policy Based Routing, PBR)
* iproute2 supports the vrf
* unix socket routing
* impacts only Layer 3 and above so L2 tools (e.g., LLDP) are not affected
* VRF devices allow VRFs to be nested within namespaces

Unfortunately, support for VRF is currently absent from the OpenWRT repo in all version.
