I'm not sure this patch qualifies as an LFS patch. Patches in LFS
are used to fix something that is broken or provide required
functionality that is not available without the patch.

This patch does a lot more than that. In fact, some of it is just
personal opinion changes over what comes from upstream. The stuff
to change to iproute must be there. Much of what is changed doesn't
really even do anything at all, it is simply cosmetic.

Most of the changes in the patch should go upstream and not in an
LFS patch.
