Is there a limit to the number of alias addresses one may have on
an interface in NetBSD 1.0? I seem to recall someone telling me
there was a limit of 32 addresses, but as far as I can tell from
the code (in_control() in netinet/in.c) the system will happily
keep adding them until the kernel can't malloc any more memory.
