    alfred: vis: Fix ifindex check when registering interface
    The return value of if_nametoindex should be checked before the rtnl query
    is send to the kernel. Otherwise we might try to operate on an ifindex
    which doesn't exist in the kernel - which will never register any interface.
    Fixes: a34f044de561 ("alfred: vis: Use rtnl to query list of hardifs of meshif")
