Well, my patch is probably wrong.
The best option would probably be to set dev->data->dev_link.link_status
appropriately inside tap_link_set() only.

I'm not sure it's compulsory to actually set the link UP in tap_dev_start()
(respectively DOWN in tap_dev_stop()).
If it is, however, it would be best done using tap_link_set() in those
