I apologies for the rash email. I realise you can't possibly test every
combination of things, it just seemed a very common thing to me though I
guess you don't do P2P at all.

I see Jouni has fixed this -- essentially what I found later is what
broke it is we would before this patch not have listened to netlink
events about that interface, now we did before and got a DOWN event
while creating it.
