Subject: [PATCH iproute2] man: add examples to ip.8

Having some examples in the top level man page might make it a little bit easier
for new users to get started. Reused some words / sentences from the existing
man pages.

This is my first man page patch, hopefully I've done everything correctly.
If not please let me know, thanks.
