Netperf doesn't use inet_pton, just getaddrinfo() so i've not seen that 
before.  I'm not sure if that is a bug against inet_pton(), or an 
enhancement to be filed against polygraph.  IMO if linux getaddrinfo() 
groks the %ethN then inet_pton() aught to at least be able to ignore the 
%ethN part.

In the meantime though, it might be good to "wrap" inet_pton() in 
polygraph with a routing that ignores the %ethN part and calls the real 

I've not looked at the source though - what does polygraph do with the 
results of inet_pton().  Depending on what it is trying to do, it may 
not be enough to ignore the %ethN bits...
