FS#4058 - netifd fails to delete 6to4 tunnel

tp-link archer c6u
openwrt snapshot r0-9c3b1d5
After upgrade to snapshot version from 21.02 I found that netifd infinitely retries to ifup 6to4 interface with lots of messages in the syslog
On ‘ifdown 6to4’ netifd should delete 6to4-6to4 interface but it can’t
link still remains and this causes error during ‘ifup 6to4’ ioctl SIOCADDTUNNEL returns ENOBUFFS
If the link is manually deleted then netifd succeeds

I traced the problem in netifd c code and found this non-working code

static int __system_del_ip_tunnel(const char *name, struct blob_attr **tb)
	struct blob_attr *cur;
	const char *str;

	if (!(cur = tb[TUNNEL_ATTR_TYPE]))
		return -EINVAL;
	str = blobmsg_data(cur);

	if (!strcmp(str, "greip") || !strcmp(str, "gretapip") ||
	    !strcmp(str, "greip6") || !strcmp(str, "gretapip6") ||
	    !strcmp(str, "vtiip") || !strcmp(str, "vtiip6") ||
	    !strcmp(str, "vxlan") || !strcmp(str, "vxlan6") ||
	    !strcmp(str, "xfrm"))
		return system_link_del(name);
                // THIS DOES NOT WORK. I guess interface name should not be passed as the 1st parameter but inside special structure in the third parameter (see SIOCADDTUNNEL)
		return tunnel_ioctl(name, SIOCDELTUNNEL, NULL);

with additional !strcmp(str, “sit”) it starts working again
