Hi,

I saw most of example will configure broadcast address for VIP, and
broadcast address is same as VIP.  Like VS-DRouting
<http://www.linuxvirtualserver.org/VS-DRouting.html>.

Refer to netmask for VIP
<http://www.austintek.com/LVS/LVS-HOWTO/HOWTO/LVS-HOWTO.ipvsadm.html#netmask_for_VIP>,
netmask should be 255.255.255.255. But for broadcast , I can't figure out
the reason, why should set broadcast same as vip address explicitly ?

Thanks,
Linbo
