Subject: [PATCH] [IPROUTE2] Basic documentation for dynamic link creation/destruction.


This updates the usage to indicate that we have support link creation
and destruction in addition to just setting link parameters.

It's not really great documentation of the new netlink support
for link creations and removal but it is a start.
