Subjectwhy does kernel 3.8-rc1 put all TAP devices into state RUNNING during boot
At my stable Gentoo Linux I'm observed a change behaviour for the
configured TAP devices after the boot process.

$ diff 3.7.1 3.8.0-rc1+ | grep UP
< br0: flags=4355<UP,BROADCAST,PROMISC,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
> br0: flags=4419<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,PROMISC,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
< tap0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
> tap0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500


May I ask you if this changed behaviour is intended ?


FWIW I configured those devices at that system in this way :

$ head -n 20 /etc/conf.d/net
# /etc/conf.d/net
#

# KVM
#
bridge_br0="tap0 tap1 tap2 tap3"
config_br0="192.168.0.254/8"
brctl_br0="setfd 0
sethello 10
stp off"
rc_net_br0_need="net.tap0 net.tap1 net.tap2 net.tap3"

config_tap0="null"
tuntap_tap0="tap"
tunctl_tap0="-u <me>"
