    SubjectWhy no printk for duplicate IPs?

    I was wondering today why linux would not put a message in syslog when
    someone steals my IP, so I grepped the sources, but all I found was:

    linux/net/ipv6/addrconf.c: printk(KERN_INFO "%s: duplicate address detected!\n", ifp->idev->dev->name);

    So, is it correct that for IPv4, linux won't report the fact that another
    machine is answering ARP requests for one of its IPs?

    If so why?

    Thanks,
    Marc
