    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.
