[quagga-dev 10229] [PATCH 7/8] zebra: don't change connected state from zebra/interface.c

Christian Franke chris at opensourcerouting.org
Thu Jan 24 15:04:49 GMT 2013


Try to avoid changing connected state from zebra/interface.c as this
means making assumptions about kernel behaviour which may be or may
become wrong. This state should rather be updated by events from the
kernel.
