ipadm can't set broadcast property
ipadm can get the value for the broadcast property but trying to set the property via
ipadm set-addrprop -p broadcast=<addr> <addrobj>
ipadm: set-addrprop: broadcast: Operation not supported
Broadcast address should be tunable.
As far as a fix goes, one needs to add a callback into the property table (ipadm_addrprop_table) in libipadm (ipadm_addr.c).

You can update the netmask or prefix-length with ipadm(1M), correct? The broadcast address falls out of the address + prefix, so it's not necessary to SET the broadcast, but GETting it is helpful from an observability point-of-view.
I'm not sure if this is a real bug or not.
