Thanks for fully switching to 'ip' and abandon 'ifconfig/route'.

Back in 2008 with r11157 i started the first discussion with
a patch and the core team was against it. i tried again in 2009,
but the additional 12k was just to much [1] for adding. Several
discussions in IRC always leaded to 'too much bloat' and 'unneeded'.

Finally with have it.
Why have you switched your mind now?
