Bug#767178: linux-igd should use RFC 2365 Administratively Scoped Multicast 239.0.0.0/8

Nick Leverton
Package: linux-igd
Severity: normal

When ALLOW_MULTICAST=yes and linux-igd sets up multicast routing for the
internal interface, it routes 224.0.0.0/4 which is the entire Multicast
netblock.  Instead it should probably use 239.0.0.0/8 which is the RFC
2365 Administratively Scoped IP Multicast block.

Rationale etc at http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2365
