--- Comment #4 from Rodney W. Grimes <rgrimes@FreeBSD.org> ---
This is probably the same as in
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3D226688.

I understand a desire to have the 255.255.255.255, but this is really a
degenerate form in both bug reports of 240.0.0.0/4 as that already covers t=
his
range in its use, the 255.255.255.255 is not needed in the table in any way=
, it
servers no additional purpose.

The example here though does not include 240/4 for some reason, which it
probably should be in the table if they are attempting to block reserved or
unlikely to be in use IP addresses.

I agree there is a bug, but I also assert that it is a very low priority to
spend a great deal of effort to fix.  If there is a simple fix in the radix
code or an interface error has been made, then great, lets get it fixed.
