More or less.

I'm half way through the switch to using /bin/ip, and following of the
work the Patrick McHardy et all have doe.  The kernel side is there
(or it should be) but I haven't gotten the user space side built
and tested.

Migrating by exiting the namespace has worked well enough for testing
so I haven't worried about getting the user space side of things
working again.
