In another news, you cannot have a default gateway unless it's reachable
according to existing routing table.
The reason is simple - a default gateway is not 'global', the kernel
must decide with interface to attach to a default gateway route.
So you bring a network interface up, add an address to it and only then
configure a default gateway.
And that's not specific to a Linux, it works that way in any OS I've
seen so far.
