I've been caught red handed, and guilty of not reading the entire
thread.  Now that I've reviewed the rest, I agree with your findings.

I am not sure why we ever created the virtual interface with a mask
other than /32.  Maybe just to avoid confusion.  It would make sense to
me to just assign it the address, but like Harald I worry that we might
create other problems.

I've reworked your patch a bit to remove the assignment of the
broadcast, and peer addresses from the virtual interface.  That's

I think that should still work for you, and I need to do some more

Sorry about the confusion, and thanks for taking time to explain it
