Which bit? __dev_change_flags seems to set IFF_UP before calling
ndo_open. The issue I think is that tun_sock_write_space
exits if SOCKWQ_ASYNC_NOSPACE is clear.

And now I think I understand what is going on:

When link is down, writes to the device might fail with -EIO.
Userspace needs an indication when the status is resolved. As a fix,
tun_net_open attempts to wake up writers - but that is only effective if
SOCKWQ_ASYNC_NOSPACE has been set in the past. As a quick hack, set
SOCKWQ_ASYNC_NOSPACE when write fails because of the link down status.
If no writes failed, userspace does not know that interface
was down so should not care that it's going up.


does this describe what this line of code does?
If yes feel free to include this info in a code comment and commit log.
