[IPV6]: Send ICMPv6 error on scope violations.
David L Stevens [Wed, 9 May 2007 20:53:44 +0000 (13:53 -0700)]
When an IPv6 router is forwarding a packet with a link-local scope source
address off-link, RFC 4007 requires it to send an ICMPv6 destination
unreachable with code 2 ("not neighbor"), but Linux doesn't. Fix below.
