OK, finally got it.  When the interface goes down, the address is still
valid, and there is no reason to delete (static?) routes that use this
address, but the new code does.  I was confused by the code comment below
for the rip_ctlinput() function in raw_ip.c.  The old code actually only
deleted dynamically creates routes (ARP cache, etc.).  IOW, that could be
used as some sort of flush.

: /*
:  * This function exists solely to receive the PRC_IFDOWN messages which
:  * are sent by if_down().  It looks for an ifaddr whose ifa_addr is sa,
:  * and calls in_ifadown() to remove all routes corresponding to that address.
:  * It also receives the PRC_IFUP messages from if_up() and reinstalls the
:  * interface routes.
:  */

I then modified in_ifadown() so that it deletes static routes as well
that use this address.

I will probably implement in_ifadelete() that will be called when the
interface address is actually deleted (in_control(); SIOCDIFADDR),
and restore the old behavior of in_ifadown().

This will take some time.  Meanwhile, the following patch could be used
as the temporary workaround:

Let me know if it works for you.
