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.
