In ip_forward():

Avoid forwarding ip unicast packets which were contained inside
link-level multicast packets; having M_MCAST still set in the packet
header flags will mean that the packet will get multicast to a bogus
group instead of unicast to the next hop.

Malformed packets like this have occasionally been spotted "in the
wild" on a mediaone cable modem segment which also had multiple netbsd
machines running as router/NAT boxes.

Without this, any subnet with multiple netbsd routers receiving all
multicasts will generate a packet storm on receipt of such a
multicast.  Note that we already do the same check here for link-level
broadcasts; ip6_forward already does this as well.

Note that multicast forwarding does not go through ip_forward().

Adding some code to if_ethersubr to sanity check link-level
vs. ip-level multicast addresses might also be worthwhile.
