if I create a rule such as:

config rule
  option in 'wireless0'
  option action 'unreachable'

and have a wireless0 network configured in network and wireless config, the rule
does not show up after a network restart (/etc/init.d/network restart). E.g. ip
rule does not list the rule. If a just reload the network /etc/init.d/network
reload) the rule shows up.

Tested on:


I tried my best to understand the problem (netifd code, loglevel increase, etc.)
but I'm to stupid right now :/ Maybe someone can point me in the right

This is a serious problem for our vpn setup in the mesh network (freifunk
berlin). As far as I can tell this problem is quite old and not only a problem
of the rc3.
