> The method SubnetUtils.SubnetInfo.getAddressCount() returns an int.
> However a CIDR with 0 or 1 bits in the routing mask can represent more than Integer.MAX_VALUE
entries, so the method cannot currently return the correct value.
> Unfortunately, if the method were changed to return a long it would break binary compatibility
(the return type is part of the API signature).
> One possible solution is to provide a new method which returns a long, and deprecate
the old method.
> If the original method cannot return the correct value, it should probably throw a runtime
error.
