bridge: Assign rtnl_link_ops to bridge devices created via ioctl (v2)
This ensures that bridges created with brctl(8) or ioctl(2) directly
also carry IFLA_LINKINFO when dumped over netlink. This also allows
to create a bridge with ioctl(2) and delete it with RTM_DELLINK.

This is in the netdev stable queue so it should be part of upstream
stable kernels soonish.
Can you say a little more about the background? Is this a regression?
What kernel versions are affected? Is this going to create trouble
during squeeze → wheezy upgrades for people upgrading userspace before
the kernel or vice versa?
Hope that helps,
