[erlang-bugs] inet:getifaddrs always returns running

I am not sure if this is a bug, or if I misunderstand something.

On at least R15B01 and R16B03-1 on Linux, inet:getifaddrs always returns
RUNNING in the flags even if the network cable is disconnected, and
ifconfig does not show RUNNING.

Is there any other way of getting the operational state of an interface?
