Subject: Routing tables associated with VLANs dissappear when parent ethX


Found something strange today.

Suppose I have eth2 with VLAN 2 (eth2.2) associated with it.  I
add a routing table that is associated with eth2.2 (table 76 in my case).

Now, I run:
ifconfig eth2 down
ifconfig eth2 up

All of the routes in routing table 76 are now gone!  I can
understand how it might be useful to remove the routes from
the eth2 table (as is also done), but it seems pretty extreme
to muck with the VLAN device's tables as well.

[root@...forge-33-46 local]# ip route show table 76 via dev eth2.2
default via dev eth2.2
[root@...forge-33-46 local]# ifconfig eth2.2
eth2.2    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:03:2D:08:33:47
           inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
           UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

           collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
           RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

[root@...forge-33-46 local]# ifconfig eth2 down;ifconfig eth2 up
[root@...forge-33-46 local]# ip route show table 76
