ipv4 05/05: add sysctl to accept packets with local source addresses

    ipv4: add sysctl to accept packets with local source addresses

    Change fib_validate_source() to accept packets with a local source address when
    the "accept_local" sysctl is set for the incoming inet device. Combined with the
    previous patches, this allows to communicate between multiple local interfaces
    over the wire.
