ipv6: Set FLOWI_FLAG_KNOWN_NH at flowi6_flags
The neighbor look-up used to depend on the rt6i_gateway (if there is a gateway) or the rt6i_dst (if it is a RTF_CACHE clone) as the nexthop address. Note that rt6i_dst is set to fl6->daddr for the RTF_CACHE clone where fl6->daddr is the one used to do the route look-up. Now, we only create RTF_CACHE clone after encountering exception. When doing the neighbor look-up with a route that is neither a gateway nor a RTF_CACHE clone, the daddr in skb will be used as the nexthop. In some cases, the daddr in skb is not the one used to do the route look-up. One example is in ip_vs_dr_xmit_v6() where the real nexthop server address is different from the one in the skb. This patch is going to follow the IPv4 approach and ask the ip6_pol_route() callers to set the FLOWI_FLAG_KNOWN_NH properly. In the next patch, ip6_pol_route() will honor the FLOWI_FLAG_KNOWN_NH and create a RTF_CACHE clone.
