Following up on Kat's question during last night's RTFM, it looks like
the ignoreip option in a jail's configuration affects the filter (rather
than the actions), in that the "Currently failed" and "Total failed"
counters for that filter don't increment when a failure is logged for an
IP that's in the range/list of the ignoreip option.
So, in short, those IP's are completely ignored, for all intents and
purposes, by fail2ban.
