I'm 50:50 on this one.  The workaround case is arguably more legible,
and is understood by all versions of iproute2 (including the buggy SUSE
release), so it's not like it is that ugly of a workaround.  The revert
is clean if you want to do it, but I don't see any compelling reason
requiring us to revert.  Maybe someone else can swing the vote.
