Description

On 2.3 we have a patch to alter the behavior of "route change" so that it adds a route if it's not already in the table. This patch is not present on our 2.4 builds based on FreeBSD 11, which causes various failures in areas that rely on the behavior. The most common example is a simple static IP address setup which ends up missing a default gateway.

We either need to bring back some (better) version of the old patch or change all of the calls that use "route change" which rely on the patched behavior.

I believe I encountered this problem (or a variation of it) while trying to configure a hurricane electric tunnel using a recent 2.4 development snapshot. The default ipv6 route was not being created, even though the gateway was set as the default route. The tunnel comes online, but doesn't work. When you have a patch for this bug, let me know and I'll give it a try.

Routing has been fine on 2.4 in every scenario I've tried so far.
