But what version of iproute2 do you have that requires it? I checked the current HEAD and it's still optional. This must be a bug in that particular implementation. ACK if you can argue with the version or platform this is required on.At least the 3.16 shipped on openSUSE 13.2 has that problem... though I think it's just a side effect of another change in iproute2. It worked fine with version 3.12.
Must be OpenSUSE specific. Anyway, we need to work with that as well. ACK then ;) Martin
