It looks like epair was expected to allow this, because in non-patched version it already did switching before freeing the interface. It just did not switch bere detaching. CURVNET_SET_QUIET() is used in the current version of the patch so I suppose I can commit it. But if you think that just not allowing to destroy unless both ends are in the f_home_vnet is a preferred solution and it is not late to change this I can provide the patch.
