That would surprise me a bit... can I have the openvpn log for that race
condition?  Is this something special in OpenWRT?  Normally, the tun device
can never "go away" unless OpenVPN tells it to - and if we do that, we do
not call ip/ifconfig on it afterwards.

(Also, for the busybox ip applet, our use of ip is not exactly esoteric -
setup ipv4/ipv6 addresses on tun if, add ipv4/ipv6 routes)
