   DHCP and routing seem to be regularly broken as well.  The behavior of
   adding a route when the interface is marked UP is particular troublesome.

A bug report to the networking developers would be most appreciated.

This is the first I've heard of problems with adding a route to an
interface which is up, actually at what other time can you add routes
to an interface?

If instead you are referring to the fact that routes disappear when
you down an interface, this is correct behavior and it will stay this
way.  Pre-120 kernels did this by accident, that was a bug, and
unfortunately people interpreted this previous behavior to be a "neat

   For that reason I discount bug reports with recent kernels.

Without extending the courtesy above to us, you may end up only
continuing to say this if nobody else notices and reports the bug to
the people who can fix it.
