Description

If the L2TP subnet overlaps a subnet that contains a port forward target, and automatic outbound NAT for reflection is enabled, then an invalid ruleset can be generated:

From "pfctl -f /tmp/rules.debug":

no IP address found for l2tp
/tmp/rules.debug:129: could not parse host specification
no IP address found for l2tp
/tmp/rules.debug:137: could not parse host specification

From "grep -ni l2tp /tmp/rules.debug" (relevant lines only):

129:no nat on l2tp proto tcp from l2tp to $somewhere port $blah
137:no nat on l2tp proto tcp from l2tp to $somewhere port $blah2

In this context "l2tp" is not valid as a "from" specification.
