   BTW, for example, if we do
    # ip link set eth9 name foobar
   if_indextoname() will return foobar. 
   
   we, however, will see /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth9 instead of 
   /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/foobar.  This is not good.
   
   Is this just a bug not having NETDEV_CHANGENAME handler to 
   rename it?

I think this is a bug, yes.
