SubjectARP and alias IPs
The linux implementation of ARP is causing me problems.  Linux sends out an
ARP request with the default interface as the sender address, rather than then
interface the request came on.

For example


and an ARP is received on, linux responds with as the source address in the ARP request, rather than
(which FreeBSD, Solaris, and tru64 do). To me, this is just plain wrong.
The sender address should be an address on the subnet that the request came
from, not a different one. Is there any way to fix this?
