Re: IP_ALIAS bug in 2.2.x

I got it work with old ifconfig too. Netmask does the
trick (thanks to Meelis Roos):

ifconfig eth0:1 netmask
ifconfig eth0:2 netmask
ifconfig eth0:1 down

eth0:2 stays up and running. I don't know is it fixed already or not but
using ifconfig with -broadcast flag doesn't unset IFF_BROADCAST flag.
Anyway I haven't seen no problems with it.
