your net tools are old and need updated.

there is only one physical device, it is either up or down. the proper way
to think of the device is this:

# ip a s eth1
6: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 100
link/ether 00:a0:cc:54:e1:eb brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet brd scope global eth1
inet brd scope global secondary eth1

there is one physical device that can be up or down and one or more
addresses associated with it.
