--- Comment #5 from Nathan Whitehorn <nwhitehorn_at_FreeBSD.org> ---
One workaround to this is to just delete the logic in routed that adds this
loopback route. The code is original from SGI in 1996 and I think never did
anything useful on FreeBSD -- it certainly doesn't seem to now -- but didn't
cause harm until whatever kernel change is preventing setting an IP on this
interface.

That said, while I'm happy to commit the attached patch to routed, the
underlying behavior in the kernel, whatever it is, that is making SIOCAIFADDR
fail seems bogus to me.
