If mapped IPv4 addresses are allowed, they should get exactly the same
handling as normal IPv4 addresses. Esp. mapped needs to be
handled accordingly.

When a socket is allowed to bind to INADDR_ANY two things have to be
(a) Connections to it are effectively only allowed, when one of the jail
IPs can be used. E.g. if the jail is bound to and,
but the machine has also as IP, a connection to that must not
go to the jail.
(b) Connections *from* the jail must use one of the jail addresses as
source. E.g. when the jail is bound to as before, a
connection to must not use as soure address.

This gets further complicated by the question whether or not binding to
broadcast and/or multicast addresses should be enabled by default.
