iflib: return ENETDOWN when the network device is down
iflib_if_transmit returns ENOBUFS when the device is down, or when the
link isn't active.
This was changed in r308792 from return (0), so that the function
correctly reports an error that it was unable to transmit.
However, using ENOBUFS can cause some network applications to produce
the following or similar errors:
"ping: sendto: No buffer space available"
This is a bit confusing as the real cause of the issue is that the
network device is down.
Replace the ENOBUFS return with ENETDOWN to indicate more clearly that
the reason for the failure to send is due to the network device is
This will cause the error message to be reported as
"ping: sendto: Network is down"
