    ifconfig(8): Fix regdomain.xml parsing issue
    The original regdomain.[ch] code can't handle unknown netbands in
    regdomain.xml, mainly because it didn't distinguish the following two
    * <netband><band><freqband ref="xxx">...
    * <freqband id="xxx">...
    Therefore, it tried to strdup(id) but with 'id = NULL' and thus caused
    segfault errors with the new regdomain.xml, like:
    ifconfig: unknown mode "11ac" at line 114
    ifconfig: band without enclosing netband at line 115
    [1]    326065 segmentation fault (core dumped)  ifconfig
    This commit fixes the above segfault error by ignoring unknown netbands.
    Although ifconfig(8) emits some warnings about unknown/unexpected
    elements, it works as expected :D
