Subject: netlink messages on 'ip l s down' event


I noticed that ipv4 subsystem sends RTM_NEWLINK message with new flags
on 'ip l s down' event, but ipv6 subsystem sends RTM_DELLINK message. Is
it inconsistency or feature? If it is inconsistency, which approach will
be used in future? (tested kernels 2.6.20,21,22)

Thanks for reply.
