Man page was not updated. It is needed to add new command to man page ip-link.

Hi Pavel,

I have no problem with new doc bug, but I must insist to add simple doc to ip-link man page. I have patch for you which does that. Please review it and if it is ok, add this patch into package and propose it to upstream.
