src/sys/net: route.c rtsock.c
Permit the existence of a route with unlinked ifp and ifa,
enabling this way the posibility to send a packet on an interface with
source address from another interface.
What is this about?
Permits a route to be created using -ifa x.x.x.x -ifp if0 even if
x.x.x.x is attached on a different interface. It's consistent with what
route(5) states and doesn't ignore one of the parameters like until now.
Why is it necessary?
It's essential for my further work where I need to route packets to a
pseudo-interface in order to encapsulate packets but without using that
interface particular address.
Was it discussed somewhere?
Yes, but in private. I don't see it as a feature added but a bugfix so
bringing it on tech-net@ was not necessary in my opinion.
