SubjectRe: [2.4 PATCH] bugfix: ARP respond on all devices
What wonders me about the behaviour is that it is not consistent.

When I have the following situation: a box with twon nics, one,
ethernet adr aa , the other ethernet adr bb

When I do an ARP request for, both respond. aa as wel as bb

But if I do another request for, and I direct it to the aa NIC,
it does not respond. Unless I turn on packet_forwarding (i.e. routing).
Remember, ARP is not routable, or shouldn't be, yet it is treated as such.
