Re: 16 year old bug

Does our IPSEC code actually _use_ non-continguous netmasks? While RFC950
technically allows them, they're "recommended against", and most modern
network hardware will turn their nose up at them AFAIK.

(Note that I'm not saying that there isn't a bug in the way this routine
is used - but if non-contiguous netmasks are used elsewhere, I'd be very
surprised if other pieces of code also were not similarly 'buggy'.)
