FS#1452 - [netifd] gretap instantiation fails on and after commit 1cd76e2 on "master"

Looking at the ''netifd'' commits, it appears that the change in behavior was introduced at the commit shown below. 

While a patch to reverse this commit "resolves" the symptom, it is not clear that it is the //cause// of the problem. The change in ''netifd'' may cause ''NULL'' to be returned in some cases, rather than ''iface'' which may cause change in behavior elsewhere.
