Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 with IPADDR=127.x.x.x (any IP from 127.0.0.0/8 will do)
2. ifup eth0
3. Check that the IP is present there:
# ip addr sh eth0
4. ifdown eth0
Address from step 1 is still present on the interface
Address from step 1 is removed from the interface after step 4
ifdown works properly with any (tested) IP ouside of 127.0.0.0/8
