Maybe you should mask newer versions of sys-apps/iproute2 if you're inclined to keep using that old kernel. The older ebuilds are kept around for that reason.
Comment 3 cilly 2013-05-30 18:55:41 UTC
I'd suggest to add a kernel-version check and warning message for ebuild info log. I.e. if installing 3.8 and kernel 2.6.32.x is active warn user that 3.3 should be used.
Comment 4 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2013-05-31 18:25:12 UTC
feel free to query on the kernel netdev list, but as Jeroen says, it's not generally a use case we care about.  if there's a patch upstream has merged, then we can cherry pick it.
