hmm just make/propose a patch, that changes this,.. *GG

regarding resource usage,..
imho the actual implentation might or might not have a real cpu benefit
against one that does not ignore remote hnas (-> message processing is a bit
faster, fib-walk a bit slower *G)

i'm quite sure it was just the easiest way to code it,.. (and not an cpu or
memory usage optimzation *G)
