Feature #11527: IPAddr#mask_addr isn't a method
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/11527#change-54203

----------------------------------------
Right now there's no way to get the current value of an IP address's mask from an IPAddr instance. While there's an instance variable (`@mask_addr`), there's no attribute reader to get it's value, and relying on reading the instance variable isn't pretty nice for a stdlib (stable as it might be).

Is there any particular reason why this is not public, or would a patch/pull request adding the corresponding `attr_reader` be accepted?
