Thanks for your responses.
The layer 3 addressing is definitely dictated by Amazon. This is non
negotiable and any other engineers familiar with interconnecting to AWS
VPC's will be able to confirm. Once again it is not routed it is just used
for communicating between the nodes across this link only. It is not
advertised further. It is somewhat comparable to the FE80::/10 IPv6 link
local range. I reviewed RFC 3927 (https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3927.txt)
and maybe the only issue one could take with it being used in this scenario
is that it is not dynamically assigned.
I have resolved my problem. It turned out to be a possible linux kernel
bug. Specifically the Linux VTI functionality was broken in 3.16.39 on
Ubuntu 14.04. It was obscure and hard to pinpoint so hopefully this helps
someone else. I can confirm it is still broken in 3.19, I went back to
3.16.30 to get around it for now.
