 Anything that expands to the current directory is more aggravation
than it's worth, so IMO 3 is right out.

 I'm not totally against the idea of repackaging it, but I am
reluctant - particularly when we're close to a release.  The
changelog from the announcement on lwn has:

David Lamparter (1):
      iproute2: Format IPv6 tunnels endpoints nicely.

Mike Frysinger (1):
      ip/routef lifesaver

Patrick McHardy (1):
      Fwd: Re: more iproute2 issues (not critical)

Pavel Roskin (1):
      ip: add support for displaying link types 802 and 803

Stephen Hemminger (11):
      Revert "Increase internal clock resolution to nsec"
      Add xt_tcpudp.h
      incorrect initialization
      headers update to 2.6.22
      fix last change
      fix build warnings
      netem: static
      Add TC_LIB_DIR environment variable.
      ss: fix issues with signed inodes

Thomas Graf (2):
      iproute2: support for goto/nop action and detached flag
      iproute2: Support IFF_LOWER_UP and IFF_DORMANT

Yasuyuki KOZAKAI (1):
      Fix symbolic link to tc-bfifo.8

jamal (2):
      SAD info
      SPD info

 Most of these mean nothing to me, the only one that sounds
important is the ip/routef change.  I guess this is from gentoo
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139853 - looks worthwhile,
but not critical (the dates suggest it went upstream a year ago)
so I vote for ignoring the update.
