I recently upgraded my Debian distribution from Jessie to Stretch. I have a code which handles the kernel netlink bridge events for adding/deleting interfaces to bridge. When an interface is removed from bridge in stretch I get a netlink event with RTM_DELLINK for an interface with master as the bridge. However, after delete I also get RTM_NEWLINK additional event with an interface and master as the bridge. However, I was not getting this event in Jessie. Is this a known bug or this event is meant for something else ?
