CIDR/netmask processing to the v4-to-v6 conversion; as Andrew pointed
out,  you were hacking into hba.c functionality that overlapped with
SockAddr_cidr_mask.  Doing the conversion after we've collected the
netmask seems a lot cleaner to me.  Also, this way keeps a fairly decent
separation of interests between hba.c (parsing the hba.conf syntax) and
ip.c (messing with address representations).

clean it up more, be my guest ...

I wrote it :-) The reason is that alone of the tokens in this file
address/mask is a composite. I agree it is a bit ugly. In fact, this
whole function is ugly and getting uglier and needs recasting. I intend
to have  a go at that, since I am partly responsible, but not in the
present cycle.

Nobody objected when the original patch from Kurt (including my bit) was
submitted, though, so it's a bit late to complain now about aesthetics.
