Subject: Re: network interfaces called "all", "default" or "config"

Yes, I know  those are also used for the eth0:1 "aliases", but the bug
is, since it is allowed to do

    ip link add link eth0 eth0:123 type vlan id 123

Then the

    ip link del link eth0 eth0:123

should be allowed as well. Or probably better to avoid confusion

    ip link add link eth0 foo:bar type vlan id 123

should not be allowed.

Worse:

   ip link add link eth0 foo:bar type vlan id 1
   ip link add link eth0 foo type vlan id 2

   ip link del foo:bar

deletes foo instead of foo:bar.
