Subject: iproute2: Optional 'name' keywork in ip link is broken


I got an issue since iproute2 3.16, this command is not working anymore:

# ip link add bar type veth  peer name foo
Error: argument "bar" is wrong: Unknown device

My current workaround is to use the optional "name" keywork for the 
first veth

# ip link add name bar type veth  peer name foo
