(In reply to Alexander V. Chernikov from comment #14)
Let me again assert, it is WRONG and causing troubles for 25 years of router
code to have FreeBSD's kernel attempt to maintain these loopback routes.  That
is the domain of a routing daemon, and here again we have yet another we have
to fix the routing daemon cause we did something stupid in the FreeBSD kernel.

PLEASE rip out the stupid attempt for the kernel to implement a routing policy
and restore this to the domain of routing code which has a far better chance of
knowing what goes on.

PLEASE STOP ripping out code from routing daemons that is actually the exact
correct way to maintain loop back routes.
