	I don't see your point.  which configuration are you talking about?
	(1) # ifconfig p2p0 inet6 A B prefixlen 64 alias
	(2) # ifconfig p2p0 inet6 A B prefixlen 128 alias
	(3) # ifconfig p2p0 inet6 A prefixlen 64

	with the lastet KAME, (1) is illegal and rejected.  (2) and (3) works
	happily.  maybe we should ignore netmask on (1) configuration and treat
	it as (2).  don't remember why we did not do so.
