Add the ability to create additional loopback interfaces
Plus Target Version:
This is important for setting up dynamic routing protocols such as BGP, OSPF, and so on.
FreeBSD already has such functionality. This is implemented by adding lo<number> interfaces and their configuration in the /etc/rc.conf file. For example:
cloned_interfaces = "lo1"
ifconfig_lo1 = "inet a.b.c.d/prefixlen"

The current workaround is to create a bogus VLAN on a physical interface and assign these as passive-interfaces in FRR.
