[quagga-dev 7949] static route via a device in quagga can not recover when IP address is deleted and added again for that interface

It is found that if there is static route via a device (for example, ip 
route 192.168.220.0/24 eth1) in zebra,
zebra will not send netlink message to the kernel when the IP address of 
the eth1 is removed and added.

As a result, the kernel will delete the static route when the IP address 
of eth1 is removed.
However, the static route will not be added when IP address of eth1 is 
assigned later.

Does anyone have any idea is there any patch for this problem?
