  MFC	r196865
  This patch fixes an address scope violation. Considering the
  scenario where an anycast address is assigned on one interface,
  and a global address with the same scope is assigned on another
  interface. In other words, the interface owns the anycast
  address has only the link-local address as one other address.
  Without this patch, "ping6" the anycast address from another
  station will observe the source address of the returned ICMP6
  echo reply has the link-local address, not the global address
  that exists on the other interface in the same node.
