Quoting a colleague of mine working on the network stack:

    [this is] a regression in (upstream) iproute2 3.16, fixed in 3.17.  
    bnc#907093 has been created for it. (Factory is also affected but a
    submit request is already on its way.)

So I think we should keep that for those running the buggy 3.16.
